Enquiries and Internal Reviews

During the lifetime of any school, there will be incidents where allegations are made against teachers or between pupils, leading to internal enquiries and in the worst instances, external investigations. We have extensive experience representing schools, teachers and parents in these difficult situations and can:

  • Advise on the processes for investigating allegations against teachers and between pupils;
  • Represent teachers in the event of criminal investigations being instigated or charges being brought;
  • Field any media attention or interest and assist the school in the proper handling of the press;
  • Provide court representation in the event of charges being pursued; and
  • Advise the school on the appropriate handling of malicious allegations
