Dealing With Allegations Of Abuse Against Staff

The Wessex Learning Trust is committed to providing the highest level of care for both its pupils and staff. It is extremely important that any allegations of abuse made against any member of staff or a volunteer are dealt with thoroughly and efficiently, maintaining the highest level of protection for the child whilst also giving support to the person who is the subject of the allegation. Our policy is in line with the Department of Education, Statutory Guidance on Dealing with Allegations of Abuse against Teachers and Other Staff. (October 2012).

This policy is to ensure that all staff, children and parents or carers are aware of the procedure for the investigation of allegations of abuse in order that all complaints are dealt with consistently, fairly and as efficiently as possible.
