Child Protection



This episode explores the issues behind a serious accusation, such as when a teaching assistant is accused of inappropriate behaviour towards a pupil.

Questions about child protection are raised and advice given to governors who are keen to understand more about schools and their role.

Expert, Paul McGann, monitors a panel of governors engaged in a hypothetical discussion about the issue. They watch a series of reconstructions and debate the procedures involved and where their duties lie.

The main considerations are:

  • Where to go for advice on child protection
  • A governor's role in setting policy
  • How to handle the consequences of such an event
  • How a governor can protect both staff and pupils in similar circumstances
