Safeguarding
The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is a top priority at Harrogate College. All staff are trained in safeguarding and child protection and our dedicated safeguarding team is on hand for advice and support. In our last Ofsted inspection, safeguarding in the college was judged to be ‘effective’.

Safeguarding covers anything that may pose a risk to the safety and wellbeing of an individual, this includes but is not limited to the following:

  • All forms of abuse (physical, emotional, sexual and financial)
  • Neglect
  • Bullying (including cyber bullying)
  • Children missing education
  • Child sexual exploitation
  • Domestic violence
  • Drugs
  • Faith abuse
  • Female genital mutilation (FGM)
  • Forced marriage
  • Gangs and youth violence
  • Mental health
  • Preventing radicalisation
  • Relationship abuse
  • Sexting
  • Trafficking 

As a college, we take measures to ensure that our safeguarding duty is being met. These measures include:

  • Having a clear policy and procedures in place
  • Having a team of specialist stay safe officers
  • Carrying out background checks on all employees
  • Encouraging staff and students to raise concerns
  • Taking all concerns seriously and acting upon them
  • Training all staff in safeguarding
  • Delivering tutorial sessions covering safeguarding topics


If you are worried about yourself of someone you know in college, please speak to any member of staff. They will pass on this information to the safeguarding team who can take further action. There is also a ‘Report it’ button on the student intranet. Alternatively, please email safeguarding@leedscitycollege.ac.uk.
