Whistle Blowing

Statement of intent

The Challenger Multi Academy Trust (CMAT) is committed to open and honest communication and the highest possible standards in integrity, and will treat whistleblowing as a serious matter.


In line with CMAT’s commitment to openness, probity and accountability, members of staff are encouraged to report concerns which will be taken seriously, investigated, and appropriate action taken in response. Such action is termed “blowing the whistle”; this phrase is used throughout this policy, and should be viewed as a positive action of speaking up.


This policy seeks to ensure that any person suspecting malpractice knows how to raise concerns and what procedures are in place to deal with the concern.
