Our Commitment to Safeguarding 

Protecting the physical, mental, emotional and social health, wellbeing and safety of all our students is at the heart of everything we do.

Safeguarding is a key priority at UWC Atlantic College. We acknowledge fully our duty of care and safeguarding responsibilities, as individuals and as a College team, and we are fully committed to delivering best practice in safeguarding. The effective and consistent care and welfare of each student, enabling them to live and learn in a safe and secure residential educational environment, is of paramount importance.

We deliver excellence by seeking to promote a whole College culture of engagement with, and respect for, the highest principles and standards of safeguarding practice. To achieve these standards and ensure we continue to uphold them, we are committed to the continuous development, monitoring and improvement of our safeguarding policies and procedures and to the training and development of our staff in order to ensure that:

  1. every individual within the College understands fully the importance of our safeguarding policies and procedures and has the knowledge to implement them effectively;
  2. every student feels as safe as possible both physically and emotionally and every student is free from any abuse;
  3. every student understands how to keep themselves safe, and knows how to look after their own health and wellbeing; and
  4. the College has the appropriate procedures and protocols in place to act quickly if concerns arise and to provide comprehensive support as and when it is needed.

UWC Atlantic College operates safe recruitment procedures and all members of our staff have been rigorously checked (in compliance with DBS standards) for their suitability to work with young people.

Working in a positive and effective partnership with the appropriate external agencies, our safeguarding policies and procedures are regularly reviewed. They have been developed to align fully with the requirements of the Independent School Standards Regulations and National Minimum Standards for Boarding; the latest Welsh Government guidance Keeping Learners Safe; the UWC Common Standards for Safeguarding; the requirements of our Local Children’s Safeguarding Board; and overall best practice.
