School Governors - Duty of Care to School Staff
Employers have a duty of care to their employees. Governing bodies should make sure that the school provides effective support for anyone facing an allegation. They must also provide them with a named contact within school if they are suspended. If an allegation is made the headteacher, chair of governors should immediately discuss the case with the LA Designated Officer (LADO). This initial discussion allows the LADO and case manager to consider the nature, content and context of the allegation and agree a course of action.
