East Norfolk Sixth Form College is committed to the principle that it is always unacceptable for a learner to experience abuse of any kind and recognises that it has a responsibility to safeguard the welfare and wellbeing of all learners.

It will do so through commitment to safe practices and the creation of a ‘supportive culture which includes respect, openness and honesty and which recognises and champions diversity and individual need’. This statement applies to all staff, including senior managers and Governors; paid staff, volunteers and sessional workers; agency staff; students and contractors.

Our commitment:

  • The welfare of all our learners is paramount
  • All learners, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse
  • Working in partnership with learners and other agencies is essential in promoting a safe learning environment

We will always seek to provide:

  • Protection for learners at our College
  • Staff and volunteers with guidance and training in procedures they should adopt in the event that they suspect a learner may be experiencing, or be at risk of harm.

We will seek to safeguard all learners by:

  • Valuing and respecting them as individuals, providing them with opportunities to share their concerns and listening to them
  • Adopting safeguarding practices through effective procedures and training that reflects current legislation and guidelines
  • Providing a code of conduct and staff charter (code of positive behaviours)
  • Delivering Safer Recruitment and effective screening procedures
  • Sharing information about concerns with agencies who need it, and involving learners and their parents/carers appropriately
  • Reviewing our policy and practice annually
