Witherslack recommended training
Witherslack were asked to conduct a second investigation into the concern raised by a disruntled member of staff in October 2018 '“that any physical contact between staff and pupils might be misconstrued by others”. Following the initial investigation, the Care Inspectorate issued an improvement notice, demanded the suspension of the Head, and effectively forced the closure of the school.
Witherslack reached the same conclusion as the first (police-led) investigation) that no wrongdoing had occurred, that the events mentioned had not taken place, and that there were no child protection concerns.
However, despite this, Mary Aurens of Witherslack recommended that the two staff members undertake training in, “how not to have a false allegation made about you”.
This implied that they were in some way responsibile for the malicious complaint made against them.
