Hartpury College has a statutory and moral duty to ensure that the College functions with a view to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young adults receiving education and training at the College. The Children Act 1989 defines a child as a person under the age of 18. The College is committed to ensuring that it exercises the highest levels of responsibility in protecting learners and recognises that members of staff and students have an important role to play in safeguarding the welfare of children and young adults and preventing abuse.
We have a team of wardens who work on a rota basis, seven days a week, to ensure the welfare and safety of the campus to all who live and work there. They have a particular responsibility towards the care of our residential students with an emphasis on students under the age of 18 years. Our students living on site are cared for in a safe environment, with a range of extra curricular activities to support them. The College also has a dedicated welfare team and a member of the senior management team is on call 24 hours a day to support this team.
The site is well lit and has CCTV coverage in and around the main accommodation areas.
The College has a nominated Child Protection Officer who deals with any concerns regarding child protection issues.
