SAFEGUARDING STUDENTS

At Peter Symonds, we recognise we play a large part in safeguarding and promoting your welfare. We aim to provide good lines of communication with trusted adults, clear procedures and policies and an ethos of safety and protection. Our focus is on maximising opportunity and minimising risk and enabling you to achieve the best possible outcomes. Where appropriate, we work closely with the local Children’s Services Department or the Police or Health Services.

As students are below the age of 18 when they join us we have a particular duty to make sure you feel and are safe while you are in our care and that you are protected from abuse or maltreatment, whether that be in or outside College. Child Protection legislation applies until you reach 18 years old, or 25 years old if you are a vulnerable young adult.
