North Notts College is a college within the RNN Group.

The RNN Group places the safety and wellbeing of students and staff at the forefront of all its operations and acknowledges the range of activities that contribute to creating and maintaining an environment that promotes effective safeguarding practice.

The Safeguarding for All Policy provides for a coherent framework of practice to be in place and for all policies relating to this framework to address this priority.

The Safeguarding for All Policy is reviewed each year and when/or changes in law, policy, guidance or best practice occur in order to ensure that it remains a key driver in the development of strategy on safeguarding.

The Policy applies to all as Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Key RNN Group policies that contribute to the overarching Safeguarding for All Policy are available on request.

The RNN Group recognise its duties, statutory and otherwise to ensure that the organisation functions with a view to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children receiving education and training at all Group sites.

Each policy addresses the organisation strategy relating to key college activities and safeguarding provision is made within all activities.

The safeguarding policy has been written in line with ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018’, Local Authority advice and the requirements of the Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB) policies and procedures. The College contributes to multi-agency working in line with statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018); this means working with social care, the police, health services and other services to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

The College contributes to multi-agency plans to provide additional support to those children subject to child protection plans.

This will mean that we will allow access to children’s social care should they need to conduct a section 17 or a section 47 assessment (see chapter 1 of Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 for more information on these assessments).

Information for parents

We work with all our students to raise awareness of potential harms that could be encountered in everyday life.

To help you understand some of these, here you will find some links that will provide information and guidance on a range of topics both local and national.

Relationship Matters
When two people share responsibility for a child, no matter whether they are still together or separated, the relationship between them has a direct impact on the mental health of their children. https://relationshipmatters.org.uk/
