Children should be made aware that any information they choose to disclose, will be taken seriously and frequently it will be a big step for a child to tell and adult their concerns, as a result if they feel this will be shared with others or that other children may possibly “bully” them for talking to a teacher, they are not as much likely to talk about what could be very sensitive subject. Thus significant at all stages to clarify what you are going to do with this information and what will happen next.
Adults who work with children and young people will appear to know most of the personal information such as date of birth, address and contact details and as well as sensitive information like behavioral topics, some medical information, family background, if parents are divorcing and etc. The adult has responsibility to keep this information confidential.
