Keeping Our Learners Safe
Eastleigh College holds, as one of its highest priorities, the health, safety and welfare of all young people and vulnerable adults involved in courses or activities that the College are responsible for. We are committed to promoting practices that protect young people and vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect or significant harm and to the creation of a safe environment for young people and vulnerable adults through robust safeguarding practices.
Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and young people and protect them from harm, including:
- protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
- preventing harm to children’s health or development
- ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
- taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.
We recognise the importance of supporting our learners to develop the skills and knowledge to stay safe both in and outside of College; understanding that safeguarding concerns can occur in a variety of settings including the digital environment.
College staff recognise and accept their responsibility to develop an awareness of the risks and issues involved in safeguarding. As an education provider and in accordance with the relevant government legislation the College is committed to working with Hampshire Safeguarding Childrens Partnership and other agencies to ensure the safeguarding of its learners.
