Investigation Seminar

Why Should You Attend?

There are numerous situations where schools may find an investigation is required:

  • A member of staff raises a grievance or uses the school's whistleblowing procedure to raise a concern
  • An allegation is made against a member of staff which might lead to a disciplinary hearing
  • A parent raises a complaint and invokes the formal stage of the school's complaints policy
  • A pupil makes a disclosure which raises a concern about potential bullying or peer on peer abuse

Areas Covered

  • The seminar is aimed at all those who are involved in undertaking investigations in their role. With the use of practical examples and case studies, we will cover:
  • The role of an investigating officer
  • How to undertake a fair and lawful investigation
  • Identifying and gathering relevant evidence
  • Taking witness statements (including from reluctant witnesses and pupils)
  • Handling sensitive safeguarding or criminal allegations and the interplay with the police or external agencies
  • Disclosure and sharing of information under the GDPR
