Updated Policy on Safeguarding

Staff are being made aware of their responsibilities in relation to safeguarding children, young persons and adults in vulnerable circumstances.

The University’s Policy on Safeguarding has been updated, reflecting our commitment to ensuring, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety of people on its property, or who are engaged in University activities at any location.

The policy is supplemented by two sets of guidance, with appendices, which apply to:

  • activities organised for children, young persons and vulnerable adults – see the Secretariat pages for full details; and
  • the admission of young persons or children as students of the University – download the guidance here.

The guidance sets out responsibilities according to the role undertaken by individual members of staff in relation to those groups, and defines the level of awareness and training required. All staff should be aware of the availability of relevant guidance, as required by their role.
