Nottingham College places the highest importance on safeguarding, and the safety and wellbeing of students is paramount in all College activities.
Response to COVID-19
The College’s Safeguarding and Prevent Policy is fundamentally the same: young people and vulnerable adults always come first, staff should respond robustly to safeguarding concerns and continue to follow the established safeguarding procedure.
However, the College has made significant operational changes in response to the current outbreak. Most young people are now at home and staffing could be significantly affected through illness and self-isolation.
This addendum sets out some of the adjustments we are making in line with the changed arrangements in the College and following advice from government and local agencies.
