Safeguarding at St Piers College

St Piers College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

What is a safeguarding concern?

Safeguarding means protecting people's health, wellbeing and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect.

Therefore we need to know immediately if there are any concerns that are affecting a student’s health, wellbeing and human rights.

The following are concerns that must be raised to the safeguarding team:

  • Allegations, disclosures or concerns about physical, sexual, emotional, institutional, financial and discriminatory abuse
  • Neglect
  • Unexplained injuries and bruising
  • Bullying
  • Medication misadministration
  • Peer on peer assaults
  • E-safety concerns including cyber bullying, online grooming, sexting and grooming.

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon My son is a changed person. He never wanted to engage with staff or his peers, often he was non compliant and would not interact in social activities or undertake tasks. He is now so much more proactive, he has learnt home skills where he undertakes tasks using his own initiative either with minimum prompting or totally unsupported.
