We take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. We strive to ensure that all people using our buildings and services are safe from all forms of harm.
Our commitment is to provide the best and safest environment possible, so learners can succeed and staff feel secure. It's everyone’s responsibility to:
- Respect each other’s right to feel safe
- Treat each other fairly and with respect
- Not to threaten, hurt or abuse others in any way
The government has teamed up with independent pharmacies and Boots to launch a domestic abuse Ask for ANI codeword scheme. Find out more about the codeword scheme.
If you have a safeguarding concern, call Norfolk County Council on 0344 800 8020 and choose Option 1. The line is open 24 hours a day. You'll need to select if your concern involves an adult or child.
Online Learner Safety
A lot of learners are not in a physical classroom right now, but this doesn’t mean that the importance of Safeguarding changes. We must all still be aware of what to do if we are worried about our safety.
If you are concerned about internet security and how to stay safe online, visit the Age UK's website or visit Get Safe Online for expert advice.
If you are worried about online bullying, you can find information and advice on Childline's website.
If you are a learner with Adult Learning and are worried about your online safety you can also contact Adult Learning's dedicated safeguarding team on 0344 800 8005, or the dedicated safeguarding email address email@example.com - they will respond to you.
If you have a safeguarding concern not related to Adult Learning, please contact Norfolk County Council on 0344 800 8020 and select option 1.
