Safeguarding: Child Protection (including vulnerable adults)
Our Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adult Policy states that:
Ravensbourne regards the welfare of children and vulnerable adults as paramount and takes seriously its statutory duty and moral responsibility to ensure that, in all its activities and functions, robust measures exist to safeguard children and vulnerable adults and to protect them from harm or abuse. Ravensbourne is committed to meeting its duty to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults within its community or whom it comes into contact with through activities and events. Ravensbourne aims to maintain a safe and welcoming environment for staff, visitors, children and vulnerable adults. This is to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and vulnerable adults.
Safeguarding is a matter for everyone at Ravensbourne – staff and students alike – and we expect our community to behave responsibly to support, encourage and respect other members of our community to gain the best possible experience whilst working and studying.
