Referral to department for children schools and Families List 99, Protection of Children Act list or regulatory list

If the allegation is substantiated and the person is dismissed or disciplined, or the employer ceases to use the person’s services, or the person resigns or otherwise ceases to provide his/her services, the LADO must discuss with the employer whether a referral be made for consideration as to the individual being be barred from, or have conditions imposed in respect of, working with children.

The LADO must also advise whether it is appropriate to make a referral to a professional body or regulator e.g. the General Social Care Council, General Teaching Council and the General Medical Council.

If a referral is appropriate the report must be made within one month.  A referral must always be made if the employer thinks that the individual has harmed a child or poses a risk of harm to children.

The Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) is a non-departmental public body whose aim is to prevent unsuitable people from working with children and vulnerable adults. Further information, advice and updates can be found at http://www.isa-gov.org.uk/
