At Kingston Maurward College we place the safety and welfare of our students at the centre of all our activities. The safeguarding of students underpins the College values and is fully embraced by all College staff.
The College is committed to ensuring that it:
- provides an environment where children, young people and vulnerable adults can learn safely
- identifies children, young people and vulnerable adults who are suffering, or likely to suffer harm, and takes appropriate action to see that such children, young people and vulnerable adults are kept safe, both at home and College
- strives to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from radicalization.
The Parenting Hub is a new online community for parents and carers to get information and access to peer support. It will provide a safe environment for parents to share experiences, support each other and access expert advice, provide resources for parents to learn about mental health and how to better support their children, and build parents’ confidence to have supportive conversations and talk about mental health.
