New safeguarding policy for staff and students​

11 December 2019

The safety and welfare of our staff and students is crucial. A new safeguarding policy has been launched this week which clearly sets out our approach to safeguarding children (under 18’s) or adults at risk, who are staff members or students, at UCL. ​

The development of this policy has been part of UCL’s approach to the Prevention of Bullying, Harassment and Sexual Misconduct and has been worked on collaboratively between the HR, Student Support and Welfare and Safeguarding teams. ​

UCL previously had two separate policies on Safeguarding – one for staff and one for students.  The new combined policy clearly sets out roles and responsibilities, how to raise concerns about a safeguarding issue and how UCL will respond to any concerns or disclosures which are made. ​
