Safeguarding

What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is a term used in the United Kingdom and Ireland to denote measures to protect the health, well-being and human rights of individuals, which allow people — especially children, young people and adults at risk — to live free from abuse, harm and neglect. We provide this through:

  • Promotion of your health and development
  • Ensuring your safety and care
  • Ensuring you are offered the best life chances
  • Protection from abuse and neglect
  • Prevention of bullying and harassment

Our Commitment

We're committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and adults at risk. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We embrace a ‘whole college approach’ to safeguarding, ensuring that all staff are trained in Safeguarding and Child Protection issues and are kept up to date with changes in legislation and practice. We will take all allegations and suspicions of abuse seriously and will respond to them promptly. We will also make information available on Safeguarding and Wellbeing to learners, supported people and other stakeholders.
