Safeguarding & Prevent

Safeguarding our students, staff and visitors is important to us. Safeguarding means:

  • Promotion of your health and development
  • Ensuring your safety and care
  • Ensuring you are offered the best life chances
  • Protection from abuse and neglect
  • Prevention of bullying and harassment

The term ‘safeguarding’ embraces both child and vulnerable adult protection and preventative approaches to keep our student, staff and visitor population safe. Safeguarding encompasses students’ health and safety, welfare and well-being.

The College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have developed policies and procedures that aim to meet this commitment.

Our policy covers:

  • Abuse and neglect
  • Prevention of discrimination
  • Anti-bullying and harassment
  • Addressing attendance issues
  • Supporting health-care plans for students with specific medical needs
  • Safety and security
  • Prevention of terrorism and extremism - Ludlow College supports the Government's 'Prevent' strategy working against terrorism and extremism in all of its forms.

If you, as a student at the College, have any concerns about your well-being, safety or rights, then you should contact your Tutor, Team Leader or  any of the Safeguarding Panel members whose details are shown below:
