Safeguarding

content

All staff have a duty of care to respond appropriately to any protection concerns relating to the young people we come into contact with.

  • Staff are here to listen to any concerns that you have for yourself or a fellow student.
  • Staff will not make assumptions about whether harm/abuse has taken place.
  • Staff want to reassure you and will be sensitive to any anxieties you have. Staff cannot guarantee confidentiality.
  • Staff will have to pass on information to the relevant Safeguarding Co-ordinator or appropriate contact and ensure that you are kept safe.
  • Staff will record everything you tell them and will keep you informed of what happens at every step of the process.
