Safeguarding

Moulton College are committed to the safeguarding of young people and vulnerable adults. Ensuring that students are safe both on and off campus is our priority.

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm, including:

  • Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • Preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • Ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes

We have a dedicated safeguarding team, who are available to assist with issues or concerns that students may encounter at home or at College.
