About behaviour incident records

It is UK Government guidance that information sharing is essential about a child's pattern of behaviour, for example, if the child goes missing. Therefore, it's important to record behaviour incidents just as much as safeguarding concerns.

Behaviour incidents can be, for example, signs of bullying another child and being drawn into anti-social or criminal behaviour, including but not limited to gang involvement. You can read more about bullying online, see Childnet International's, Cyberbullying Guidance. You can read more about behaviour that you should record in the UK Governments document, Working Together to Safeguard Children.
