Collaboration between social services and private schools : an interview study with school staff (English)
Abstract [en]

It is legislated that social services and schools should collaborate on issues concerning children in distress or at risk of being abused.  The purpose of this study was to from the perspectives of school personnel in private schools investigate the collaboration between these elementary private schools and social services and to highlight suggestions for improvement. We conducted seven interviews with staff from three different private schools. From the perspectives of the interviewees the results indicated that there was no actual collaboration. We have analyzed the results with the help of organization theory and situational leadership theory. The study shows that the interviewed staff from the private schools wish for better and faster collaboration with the social services regarding children in distress or at risk of being abused, in order to better be able to support the children at school. The suggestions for improvement are that the social services should have a routine to provide feedback on each received report regarding concern for children and that there should be a possibility to ease secrecy.  

Abstract [sv]

Det finns lagstadgat att socialtjänst och skola ska samverka i frågor gällande barn som far illa eller riskerar att fara. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur personal vid tre olika friskolor ser på samverkan mellan friskolor och socialtjänsten samt lyfta fram förslag till förbättringar. Vi genomförde sju kvalitativa intervjuer med personal från tre olika friskolor. Resultaten var till stor del entydiga om att det, från den intervjuade personalen på friskolornas perspektiv, inte existerar någon egentlig samverkan. Resultaten analyserades med hjälp av organisationsteori och situationell ledarskapsteori. Studien visar på att den intervjuade personalen vid de aktuella friskolorna önskar en bättre och snabbare samverkan med socialtjänsten kring barn som far illa eller riskerar att fara illa för att bättre kunna stötta barnet i skolan. De förslag på förbättringar som informanterna önskar är bland annat att socialtjänsten ska ha en rutin för att ge en återkoppling på varje inkommen orosanmälan samt att det ska finnas en möjlighet att lätta på sekretessen.
