Updated model procedure: allegations of abuse
13 Sep 2021
The model procedure for schools responding to allegations of abuse made against teachers and other school staff has been updated to reflect the changes in the statutory guidance Keeping children safe in education (KCSIE), September 2021. The changes are mainly around concerns that do not meet the harm threshold.
The new document can be found on the EGFL at HR policies and procedures
Teacher and support staff unions have been consulted on the changes.
If any school would rather have a version with tracked changes still showing please email me directly and I will forward.
An updated version of the code of conduct also reflecting the changes in KCSIE will follow.
