Publisher: Ofsted


This report explores the views of children about plans to store basic information on every child in England on a new system, the Children's Index. The scheme would also include details of professionals who work with individual children. In the report, children say that only people who work with them should have access to their records, that they do not want their privacy put at risk, and that some are unsure about the security of the system.
