“Palmer's College is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment."
There is a commitment to providing the best and safest learning environment possible to ensure the learner can succeed and both young people and staff feel secure. The college has a duty of care to both young people and staff and must endure that their well-being is a priority.
The term “safeguarding children and young people” has a focus on child protection and prevention from any potential harm. This includes for example, staff recruitment, safety within the curriculum, anti-bullying, health, well-being and personal safety.
The Student Services team at Palmer’s College teams up with other services and agencies to share information and work together to protect students from harm. All students, whilst at the College or engaged in any college activities, can be assured that their welfare and safety is of paramount importance to us.
Palmer’s College trains its staff on Safeguarding issues and procedures. We have a Designated Senior Member of staff, Andy Shepherd, to lead on Safeguarding in the College. Nickie Hillebrandt is the Deputy Designated Person, supported by a team of staff from Student Services and Human Resources. In addition, a Governor has designated responsibility for Safeguarding (Rajan Mohile).
Safeguarding is given the highest priority at Palmer’s College and plays a major part in the recruitment and appointment of staff, Governors, volunteers and contractors with the required checking procedures. Palmer’s College is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
