For its size, Cadbury has a sizable team consisting of Designated Safeguarding Lead and three deputies, all trained to Level 3.
All policies relating to Safeguarding and Prevent have been recently reviewed and approved at the appropriate level.
The lead Governor for Safeguarding remains Hifsa Haroon-Iqbal. She is highly qualified and experienced and provides training and consultancy services to other education providers in relation to Safeguarding and Prevent.
Governors are encouraged to undertake Level 2 training via the College’s on-line facility.
The management team have all completed their level 2 certificate, Safer Recruitment in Education.
All staff receive Safeguarding and Prevent training as part of their induction. Further training is provided periodically, primarily through an on-line service. We're required to provide at least an annual update to all staff.
All students receive Safeguarding and Prevent training as part of their induction. Prevent has been covered in tutorial sessions and an analysis of student awareness has been completed.
Students are supported to develop an awareness of the risks and signs of radicalisation and the Specialist Tutors further reinforce this understanding and awareness through the tutorial programme.
ID cards are required to gain access to the college building and processes are in place to prevent any abuse of such cards.
A strong tutorial team ensures that students at risk are identified and supported.
Recent student survey indicated a small number of students who didn’t feel safe. These students were followed up individually and all issues resolved.
100% of students disclosing a safeguarding issue have been retained so far in 17-18. Of these, only one is currently forecast not to achieve and supportive interventions are in hand with that student and her teacher.
Recording of Safeguarding issues is captured on “Pro-Monitor”, although it is anticipated that this will migrate to “MyConcern” over the course of the current academic year
