Safeguarding, Prevent & British Values Policy

Need 2 Succeed embraces its role in helping students to achieve their full potential. This role includes a responsibility to act and intervene when it appears students need to be made safe from harm, whether the abuse is sexual, physical, emotional harm or neglect.

Need 2 Succeed believes that it is always unacceptable for students to experience abuse of any kind and recognises its responsibility to safeguard their welfare by a commitment to practice which protects them.

  • Gangs and youth violence
  • Mental health

We will take measures to ensure that our safeguarding duty is met at all times.

PREVENT DUTy

We take terrorism seriously, so we closely follow the Prevent scheme as outlined by the government. We aim to prevent people from being drawn into all forms of extremism by educating and raising awareness about issues that could endanger or cause harm.

Prevent is a government initiative aimed at stopping people getting involved with or supporting violent extremism. Part of our safeguarding duty is to protect vulnerable individuals from the risk of radicalism and extremism. To do this, we follow government guidance which is known as the Prevent Duty.

BRITISH VALUES

Need 2 Succeed promotes values which support our students to develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility, by supporting the understanding of:

Democracy: The ability to influence decision making through democratic processes such as the national electoral system, local elections or student debate.

The Rule of Law: That we are law-abiding citizens, and we are all accountable to the laws of society.

Individual Liberty: We understand and exercise our human rights in a safe environment. Students are supported and encouraged to make informed choices about their future progression pathways.

Mutual Respect and Acceptance: We promote the importance of mutual respect through our shared ‘Acceptable Standards’ of behaviour in our organisation, and we actively promote diversity and accept that people have different faiths or beliefs.

Need 2 Succeed ensures that British values are promoted and reinforced through the following actions:

  • Acceptable Standards
