The action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm – is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who comes in to contact with children has a role to play. Working together to Safeguard Children, August 2013.
Medina College fully recognises the responsibility we have to protect and support every student, member of staff, and visitor. Our commitment to act in a professional manner in accordance with relevant statutory procedures is at the forefront of the work that we do.
We understand that safeguarding covers a variety of situations in which a student might be at risk. This includes the full range of possible scenarios including cases of neglect, bullying, or even physical or sexual abuse.
The College is committed to ensuring that all staff are approachable and aware of how to deal with any potential difficult situations or disclosures, as well as how to pass the information on to designated staff.
The Child Protection Liaison Officer (CPLO) for Medina College is Michelle Butler. Working alongside Michelle are a dedicated team who are able to offer assistance with any concerns or enquiries that you may have.
