    Dealing with disclosure If a child is freely recalling events, the response should be to listen, rather than to stop the child; questioning must be limited to confirming factual accuracy required eg: •who are the people involved •what has actually happened •when and where did any incident occur •How does that make you feel. If the child has an injury but  no explanation is volunteered, it is acceptable to enquire how the injury was sustained. If you can, write down the incident immediately afterwards and record it on the school recording system - 'MyConcern' for Merstone and the paper based system for Forest Oak. Do not discuss it with your class team or colleges and if you believe the issue is serious, tell a DSL immediately. When recording, record facts. Record what the child says in their own words and what actions the member of staff has done - ie passed information to DSL. Please record the impact on the young person / others (This helps with the MASH referral process), and when adding professional opinion, mark it as such.
