Safeguarding at Platanos College
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff, volunteers and external agencies to share this commitment.
We believe that every pupil should be able to learn and participate in all school activities in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from harm. This is the responsibility of every adult employed by, or invited to deliver services at, Platanos College.
We recognise our responsibility to safeguard our pupils' welfare by protecting our pupils from physical, sexual or emotional abuse, neglect and bullying.
Applicants will be asked to apply for an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check (formerly known as a CRB check) and will be checked against the DBS barred list. Appointments are subject to the receipt of satisfactory references as according to our Safer Recruitment Policy.
All staff at Platanos College take part in Continuous Professional Development. Everyone who works at the school is encouraged to deepen their skills and think creatively.
