Safeguarding

The College is committed to the well-being and development of all students and staff, especially those who are vulnerable. Our aim is to keep all members of our college community safe and protected from harm and wrong doing.
Safeguarding is the responsibility of all students, staff and volunteers at the College and we actively promote appropriate behaviour and respect towards each other at all times. This ethos is embedded in all activities undertaken across the college.
To find out more, see the College’s Safeguarding Policy found HERE


What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined for the purposes of this guidance as:

  • protecting children from maltreatment.
  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development.
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

(Working Together to Safeguard Children 2019).


Partnership Working

The college works closely with key safeguarding partners across the city and in 6 other neighbouring local authorities to ensure young people are protected effectively.

The college works closely with the Liverpool Safeguarding Children Partnership who provide challenge, training, and advice around safeguarding issues.

Safeguarding development

Safeguarding is constantly evolving so we keep abreast of key issues that may affect the College’s stakeholders, and we work with local and national providers to ensure our training and knowledge around these issues is kept up to date, in the following areas and many more:

  • E-safety
  • County Lines and exploitation
  • Peer on peer abuse
  • Female genital mutilation
  • Forced Marriage
  • Modern slavery
  • Extremism and radicalisation
  • Equality and Diversity.

Student Voice

The college safeguarding team works closely with the student union to capture the voice of students so that any issues students are worried about are highlighted and timely support is put in place. Safeguarding is part of the college curriculum and students are taught as they are in high school about keeping themselves and others safe in college and online and how to report any concerns to us.
