...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. To find out more, enrol on the EduCare training course
If you dismiss or re-assign an employee or volunteer due to concerns over their behaviour towards children, you should notify the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
The ISA will use this information to help it decide whether the individual should be placed on the children’s barred list.
