Khyra 'had four visits by welfare'

Welfare workers visited the home of Khyra Ishaq four times last year while she was starving to death, a court heard yesterday.

Two education welfare workers, a social worker and a home education worker all called between January and April, but only one was let in.

But why were they visiting on education grounds? They had enough information through to know she was already at risk on child protection grounds from when she was in school and the other reports that had come in.

If they had received proper training they would have known to go in on what used to be called Child Protection and is now called Welfare but because this Government keeps on referring to education welfare they muddled things up and used the wrong legislation.
