Concerns about an adult working with children

This link will provide information about allegations against staff and volunteers who have contact with children and young people in their work or activities and should apply in all situations where it is alleged that a person has:

  • Behaved in a way which has harmed a child, or may have harmed a child;
  • Possibly committed a criminal offence against or related to a child;
  • Behaved towards a child or children in a way which indicates that he/she may pose a risk to children. In relation to teachers and staff (including volunteers) in a school or FE college that provides education for children under 18, this bullet point should read ‘behaved towards a child or children in a way that indicates he or she would pose a risk of harm to children’ (as outlined in the DfE statutory guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’.
