Allegations Against Staff - LADO Workshop
Allegations against Staff; how to handle them and how to reduce the risk of allegations arising
This session is facilitated by colleagues from the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) Service for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly who will provide a mixture of presentations and case studies.
This session is primarily intended for head teachers/Principals, DSLs/DDSLs, safeguarding governors of schools, academies and colleges and early years providers/nursery settings. Colleagues from any agency or organisation who work with children including volunteers as health, police, children’s homes and charities would also find the session useful and are encouraged to attend.
By the end of the session participants will:
- Be aware of what school and college staff should know and do to manage allegations against staff;
- Know how to involve the LADO;
- Understand how to build a safer organisation and apply expected behaviours;
- Know how to record and learn from any safeguarding incidents
