NUAST's Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy sets out guidelines to ensure that the rights of children are protected through staff awareness of the issues and the following of statutory and local guidelines in the reporting of concerns.
Children and young people are defined as those under the age of 18 years.

In line with the Department for Education’s statutory guidance on “Keeping children safe in education. Statutory guidance for schools and colleges.” (2016) and “What to do if you’re worried a child is being abused” (2015) the policy gives guidance on the:

  1. Role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead
  2. Role of the Board of Directors
  3. Inappropriate behaviour with children and the implications for staff in breach of guidelines
  4. Responsibilities of Staff
  5. Staff training
  6. Confidentiality
  7. Categories of abuse.
  8. Specific safeguarding issues as outlined in the “Keeping children safe in education” document
