Safeguarding and EQuality & Diversity  

SAFEGUARDING

We have made arrangements to make sure that you are safe in our Centres.  If you feel you are not safe for any reason, for example through verbal or physical abuse or you have been discriminated against tell your tutor or the Centre Manage, who will investigate to ensure your safety.  Where required a main school designated officer will investigate any incident.  If you require any further information please see the main school's safeguarding policy on this website.

EQUALITY & DIVERSITY

We are fully committed to equality of opportunity and welcome enrolments from everyone.  We positively encourage all learners with any concerns about specific needs which might affect their learning to discuss their requirements with us in confidence.  We believe that everyone is entitled to learn in an environment that is free from discriminatory behaviour so that we build a community based on mutual trust and respect.  We will ensure that resources and equipment are accessible to all and make reasonable adjustments to ensure tht all learners can access activities.
