One to ones and lone working in educational settings
"This factsheet aims to provide clear, practical guidance to ATL members who, in the course of their duties, may find themselves in one-to-one situations with children or vulnerable adults.
All organisations with staff that may be expected to work with children and vulnerable adults on a one-to-one basis should provide clear guidance.
Employers owe their staff a duty of care and, mindful of this, should strive to minimise any risk to staff’s health and safety.
There is also potential for staff to be accused of inappropriate behaviour in one-to-one situations. It is therefore essential that, when working on a one-to-one basis, all reasonable precautions have been taken."
