Safeguarding & Prevent

SAFEGUARDING

Children and young people have a right to expect the College to provide a safe and secure environment and a fundamental right to be protected from harm. This means everyone who encounters children and young people, have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. If you are concerned about risk of harm to yourself, a young person or a vulnerable adult, please call the College on 01823 320800 and ask to speak with the Designated Safeguarding Lead or you can email safeguarding@richuish.ac.uk.

THE PREVENT DUTY

The Prevent Duty seeks to safeguard students and staff from becoming radicalised or getting drawn into extremism or terrorism. Staff and students are trained to look for the signs of possible radicalisation but also to ensure there is freedom of expression in the College.

Prevent is part of the UK’s counter terrorism strategy: CONTEST

If there are concerns, students are encouraged to talk to their tutor or to any of our Safeguarding Leads:
