MONDAY — My Actual Day

Got into work a bit late due to traffic, rushed through calls and handover.

Attended a Child Looked After review meeting that no one had told me about, so had to cancel supervision (add to my to-do list).

Lots of recommendations made in the review regarding this young person (add to my to-do list).

Then got called into one of the young people’s school as there had been a problem.

Spent an hour or so with the young person explaining why school is so important.

Following this, the risk assessment for education needs updating (add to my to-do list).

Had a long telephone conversation with the Operations manager (add lots to my to-do list).

Spent an hour with the young people before home.

I love this job and spending time with the children. I am sure I will complete my to do list tomorrow.
