1998 - 1998

Scope and Content

Provides details of employment at Haut de la Garenne, and fieldwork service. Charts evolution of accepted best practice with regards to the physical chastisement of young children, noting that by 1979 it was accepted that children should not be physically chastised except for caning as a form of corporal punishment administered by the Head of the Home. Comments on regulations surrounding caning as a form of corporal punishment. Does not recall being officially informed of a change of policy regarding physical chastisement, but assumes when comparing actions taken between 1976 and 1998 to actions taken after 1979, that the [Children's] Service would have informed them of this change in policy.
