“The school provides a safe environment. Leaders have established rigorous procedures and oversight for all aspects of safeguarding, personal development and the well-being of pupils and learners.” (Ofsted 2018)
Maintaining High Standards
R.E.A.L. places people in positions of responsibility for young people. Consequently, R.E.A.L. seeks to do all that is reasonable to ensure the good character of all employed in delivering its services, including volunteers, and the safety of young people.
Therefore recruitment and induction procedures are necessarily robust and all staff and key volunteers undertake an enhanced DBS check. R.E.A.L. recognises however that these checks are not a guarantee that the checked person’s behaviour will always continue to be appropriate. All staff are responsible for maintaining high standards of behaviour when engaged in R.E.A.L.’s provision and are encouraged to raise their own concerns of others’ inappropriate behaviour with the Safeguarding Coordinator.
All staff will wear photographic identification whilst engaged in the work of R.E.A.L. and this will include details of their DBS certificate should it be requested by external parties.
We have a duty to share relevant information with safeguarding colleagues.
