Independent Investigation Service

Reduce the risk of internal conflict, with a professional independent investigator.

Every staff grievance must be handled sensitively and quickly if it is not to take focus away from the children, teaching and learning.

Our independent disciplinary and grievance service will save you senior leadership time and reduce the risk of internal conflict.

All of our investigators have many years of education sector experience in interviewing, mediation and evidence gathering.

  • They will firstly meet with all involved parties to establish the facts.
  • The evidence will be collated and summarised - with a corresponding chronology of events - so that you are fully informed and able to determine the appropriate course of action.
  • Once the investigation is complete a detailed report will be written and presented that outlines the allegations, documents all the supporting evidence and sets out the key findings.
The Investigation Team was absolutely superb, efficient and reliable. The report was detailed, well presented and helpful to all involved. I would recommend the service without reservation - super value for money.
