Gateway College has a statutory and moral duty to ensure that the College functions with a view to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the young people and vulnerable adults studying at the College.
We take the safety of our students very seriously, this includes health and safety practice on College premises and students own personal safety and wellbeing. You can speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team at any time if you have any worries or concerns about your own or anyone else’s safety and wellbeing. Our Safeguarding Team are well trained and experienced in supporting students with a range of personal issues including domestic violence, sexual exploitation, forced marriage, homelessness and any concerns relating to extremism or radicalisation.
Leicester Safeguarding Children Board
Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a duty on educational bodies to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’. At Gateway, we incorporate our duties under the Government’s Prevent agenda within our approach to Safeguarding.
Fundamental British Values
These values are defined as ‘democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs’. Gateway College encourages its students and staff to respect other people with particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.
If members of the public, staff and students are worried, or have fears regarding an individual that studies or works at the college, they are able to report safeguarding concerns anonymously through the Gateway College email helpline - email@example.com.
