Safeguarding

What is Safeguarding?

North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College’s Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy is designed to guide and support staff to protect any students that may be vulnerable and at risk of harm.

The key objectives of the policy are to:

  • Promote a safe environment for all our students to learn and achieve
  • Actively promote the welfare of students
  • Identify any students who may be experiencing abuse or harm in college, at home or in relationships and take appropriate action to ensure their safety

North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students and expects all staff, volunteers and students to share this commitment.

A copy of the policy can be downloaded from here.


Operation Encompass

Our college is now part of Operation Encompass, a new safeguarding initiative which aims to provide early reporting to schools and colleges of any domestic abuse incidents which might have an impact on our students.
