Safeguarding

New College is committed to keeping the children and adults at risk in our care safe, by providing a safe environment for them to learn and work. We also help to identify children and adults who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, so that appropriate support and action can be taken to keep them safe both at home and in the College.

We work closely with Swindon Borough Council and Wiltshire Council as well as other relevant external agencies. Our work is guided by the government publications Keeping Children Safe in Education and Working Together to Safeguard Children, as well as the South West Child Protection Procedures.
