Children: Databases

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 24 June 2009, Official Report, column 989W, on children: databases, by what date he expects all local authority ContactPoint teams to have been given access to ContactPoint. (283239)

All local authorities have had access to ContactPoint for shielding records, however, full access to ContactPoint will not be given to all local authorities until the ContactPoint management teams have completed the necessary training.

All Early Adopter local authorities and Early Adopter national partners have completed such training. For local authorities and national partners that are not early adopters, we expect ContactPoint management teams to be trained between June and August, so that all local authority ContactPoint management teams should have access to ContactPoint by autumn.
