Getting It Right In Fife
Child protection has to be seen in the context of the wider Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) approach, the Early Years Framework and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Child protection must be seen within the wide context of supporting families and meeting children’s needs through GIRFEC.
GIRFEC promotes action to improve the wellbeing of all children and young people across eight wellbeing indicators, commonly referred to as SHANARRI. These wellbeing indicators encourage practitioners to consider the holistic needs of children in relation to them being Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible, Included. The primary indicator for child protection is to keep a child Safe.
