...how to put a disciplinary procedure in place or raise a concern about a colleague? This section tells you how to do it.
Your organisation should have a disciplinary or whistleblowing procedure. This means that anyone who has concerns about a colleague’s behaviour knows what procedure to follow to raise their concern. Children, young people and parents should also be aware of your policy.
Senior members of staff should investigate concerns confidentially and fairly. Set out the process for dealing with allegations in your organisation’s child protection procedures.
If you dismiss or re-assign an employee or volunteer due to concerns over their behaviour towards children, you should notify the Disclosure and Barring Servive (DBS).
