Sunderland College fully recognises its statutory and moral duty to ensure that the College functions with a view to safeguarding and promoting the health and welfare of students receiving education and training at the College.

The College endeavours to create and maintain a safe learning environment for all students.  The College has a designated safeguarding lead and other designated staff to ensure appropriate protocols are in place, so that any identified concerns can be addressed and supported in partnership with other agencies as appropriate.

All staff working with students will receive training adequate to familiarise themselves with safeguarding issues and their responsibilities relating to the College’s policies and procedures, with regular refresher training every 3 years.
