We use the intake decision response tool (DRT) to decide on the appropriate report of concern response pathway when we receive information or concerns for tamariki, including those in care.
Use these prompts to gather and assess as much information as possible from the person reporting the concerns about te tamaiti.
When we determine a report of concern requires a statutory response, we must decide the timeframe to complete the safety and risk screen.
Many parents lightly smack their children to correct bad behaviour. We need to use professional judgement and common sense when we receive a report of concern about smacking, while also keeping safety in mind.
