Safeguarding & Prevent

At Petroc the health, safety and well-being of learners is of paramount concern to us. We listen to our learners and take seriously what they tell us. We want to work in partnership with parents and employers to help each learner achieve their full potential and make a positive contribution to the world they will be part of in the future.

To promote a safe environment for learners, our selection and recruitment procedure includes all checks on staff and regular volunteers’ suitability, including Disclosure and Barring Service checks, as governed by current legislation

Petroc Prevent Duty Statement

Safeguarding against radicalisation and extremism is part of our Prevent Duty, and falls under our Duty of Care, this is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability at Petroc.

We expect all of our staff and learners to uphold and promote the fundamental British Values of the society in which we live and embed them in our lives at Petroc. These values include:

• Individual Liberty
The Rule of Law
Respect and Tolerance

All staff are trained in Safeguarding and Prevent and receive regular update training, and are aware of the procedures for passing on concerns within Petroc. If any members of the college or local community have concerns about the welfare of a learner at Petroc, please pass them on to the College Safeguarding Team.
