Dealing with a Disclosure
 Immediately stop what he or she is doing and listen to what is being said
 Don’t display shock or disbelief.
 Accept what is being said.
 Allow the child to talk freely.
 Reassure the child, but do not make promises which it might not be possible to
keep – in particular, you cannot promise confidentiality.
 Don’t apportion blame
 Stress that it was the right thing to tell.
 Listen, rather than ask direct questions. You don’t need to get all the details at
this stage – you just need enough information for the School DSP and the
Group DSP to assess what may have happened and what needs to be done.
 Not criticise the alleged perpetrator.
 Explain what has to be done next and who has to be told.
 Make a written record as soon as you can
 Contact the School DSP, the School Principal or the Group DSP without delay
 NOT allow the child to be interviewed a second time by other members of
staff, however well-meaning. Accept what the child says and report to the
School DSP, the School Principal or directly to the Group DSP.
Do not connect with students via social media
Be sensible and know where to draw the line
Do not put yourself in a compromising situation
You have a duty of care but not a duty to be a friend
