Safeguarding Statement

Reed Business School is committed to ensuring that young people and vulnerable adults are offered the information, advice and support they need to stay safe and be able to actively participate in their education and training. We therefore take the responsibility to safeguard learners very seriously. Staff receive safeguarding training, are Disclosure & Barring Service checked, receive update training (incorporating the Prevent duty) and know how to respond to safeguarding concerns. Those named in the Safeguarding Policy have undertaken the appropriate level of safeguarding training and know how to identify the signs of potential abuse/significant harm/radicalisation and know when and how referrals should be made. We do not tolerate any form of bullying or harassment (includes cyber or social media bullying), students should always feel safe whilst at the Business School and should not feel threatened by the environment or by other people in it. Sometimes we may have to tell others in order to assist, but this will only be on a ‘need to know basis’ and with a view to ensuring a learner’s personal safety. There are designated members of staff specifically trained in Safeguarding practice (including Prevent) all of which are named in our Safeguarding policy and can be found on our website. The Policy takes account of all relevant legislation including the latest statutory guidance.

Safeguarding is an umbrella term and covers protecting young people and vulnerable adults and is best seen in the above diagram. It is integral to all our activities at the Business School. If you are concerned about your own health, safety or wellbeing, or that of another student or member of staff, it is important that you tell someone about it.

Health and Safety

As expected, we take very seriously the health and safety of our students. Risk assessments are conducted as and when necessary and the Health and Safety Policy is reviewed annually.

Equality and Diversity (Inclusion)

If you have a learning disability, learning difficulty, medical or mental health condition, you may require additional support. We recognise that everyone is different, we respect these differences and value the benefits diversity brings. We encourage applicants and current students to disclose any additional need so that we can discuss and make reasonable adjustments for the duration of your studies at the Business School.
