It is a sad fact of life that investigations into pupil behaviour, accidents and incidents at school, allegations about staff and sometimes staff capability issues are all too common.
Drawing on our expert Education solicitors’ experience of handling complex litigation and allegations, and of clerking literally hundreds of appeals, this course looks at how best a school and the senior management team can provide legally robust, time effective investigations into all possible areas of conflict.
The course will consider:
- The differences between civil litigation that a school may face, for example an injury on school premises
- What is good evidence for an exclusion
- Can witnesses be anonymous?
- How to manage allegations about staff
- How to be sure of your paperwork if the case goes further
About our School Investigations Training
The School Investigation training course is open to delegates to book individual places. The day rate is £180 for the first delegate, and additional delegates from the same organisation are charged at £150 per place. This cost includes the documentation pack and refreshments during the day, including lunch.
The School Investigations training course can also be delivered in school, or to a group of schools which may be very cost effective. Course groups are kept to a maximum of 12 delegates and in school courses cost £600 per day, or £795 plus VAT for up to 15 delegates. For this charge, the school provides the venue and prepares the course documentation. No refreshments are included in this cost.
The above costs are exclusive of VAT.
