Confidential Reporting Code


The Committee considered a report of the Corporate Director of Resources which provided the updated Confidential Reporting Code to remind members and employees of how employees can express any concerns they had about a procedure, process, or person confidentially (for copy see file of minutes). 


Responding to the query why schools had a separate confidential reporting policy, the Fraud Manager explained that both policies were similar and the Council were responsible for the investigation, however schools had different reporting options. The Corporate Director of Resources added that the policy would apply to schools with a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the Council and policies would be checked as part of the audit process.



That the Confidential Reporting Code attached at Appendix 2 of the report be agreed.
