"School health is a security for us all" (English)
The aim of this study is to understand and describe school staff´s view on the legal obligation to report child maltreatment. With this approach I will get a better understanding how child maltreatment can be caught up in the Swedish community. Previous research shows that school is one of the authorities who report most children to social services. Previous research indicates that cooperation between school and social services reduces the time of the investigations, and gives a better understanding of what is to be reported. The result shows that a functional cooperation between school staff´s as well as between school and social services is important for children to be caught up in the community. The result also shows that the school tends to do investigations themselves. This is not what the law says. It can result that a report to social services will late or absent. This study is written by a social constructivism approach and with Bronfenbrenners theory, the ecology of human development.
