Scope and Content

Refers to the family home as a house rented form the States of Jersey, commenting on its condition and maintenance. Provides personal details about Witness 391, outlining history of contact between the family and the Children's Office since 1971, including several admissions into care, citing children being born and accommodation difficulties as reasons for admissions. Includes comments about the relationship between Witness 391 and his parents, and remarks about time spent with father in the United Kingdom and quality of care provided by mother. Includes comments about Witness 391's personality and attitude, commenting on limited success of placement on voluntary supervision. Refers to Witness 391's transfer to D'Hautrée School from St Martin's Primary School. Describes Witness 391 as self-centred and manipulative, commenting on impact of his behaviour and attitude on his parents in respect of their ability to trust him in respect of stealing. Finishes with conclusion regarding Witness 391's case. Includes remarks about his behaviour at home, noting consensus that reception into care would not assist due to him having been in care before. Suggests that a period of supervision be implemented and a more understanding approach adopted in respect of him. Comments on Witness 391's lack of remorse or reasoning for his offences. Suggests that if a binding over couple with supervision from the [Children's] Department fails, a period of more structured supervision via a Probation Order may be necessary.
