Managing allegations against teachers and other school staff - Correction
16 Sep 2021
The new version of Keeping Children Safe issued in the summer stated low level concerns regarding staff should be reported to the DSL.
This was inconsistent to previous guidance that all concerns regarding staff should go to the headteacher. I was pleased the Department for Education changed this in the final September 2021 version of KCS which now states all concerns, even low level ones, must be reported to the headteacher.
Please note the guidance on managing allegations was updated on 15 September to reflect this. (last paragraph, page 13).
The updated document can be found on the EGfL at HR policies and procedures
