Safeguarding

SAFEGUARDING

The safety and welfare of all pupils at Dover College is our highest priority.

We pride ourselves on knowing each pupil as an individual and to provide a safe environment, so that all pupils can learn in safety.

Each member of staff, contractor or volunteer who comes into contact with the pupils of Dover College has a role to play in safeguarding including a responsibility to act and report any concerns, to share information and put our pupils first. Our safeguarding policy is available here
