This half-day event is for all those who need to understand the processes involved when allegations have been made against a member of staff in an Education setting

The Department of Education is very clear that if an allegation is made against a teacher the quick resolution of that allegation should be a clear priority to the benefit of all concerned. Any unnecessary delays should be eradicated.

It is essential that any allegation of abuse made against a teacher or another member of staff or volunteer in an educational establishment is dealt with very quickly, in a fair and consistent way that provides effective protection for the child and at the same time supports the person who is the subject of the allegation. It is crucial that school managers should be aware of how the process needs to be carried out in the best interests of all concerned.

Course Outcomes: Participants will have:

  • A good understanding of the processes involved when allegations against a member of staff have been made
  • Explored the duty of care of all professionals who may be aware of an allegation
  • Learned about the risk factors to children and young people when allegations are not appropriately addressed

This course would be ideal for Headteachers, Designated Safeguarding Leads and other Senior Staff members in Education
