Abstract

The primary research question for this present study focused on whether the multi-agency arrangements, of which schools are a part, have been sufficiently robust not to place children at increased risk during the coronavirus pandemic in the UK. The study took place between July and September 2020 in five English local authorities and explored the subject not only from the perspective of schools and children’s social care, but from that of other agencies including child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), school nurses and the police.

The work was made possible by a grant from the King’s Together Fund supported by the Economic and Social Research Council.
