Staying Safe

Safeguarding our students, staff and visitors is an important issue to us.

WAES is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff to share this commitment.

We have developed a Safeguarding and prevention of radicalisation policy that aims to meet this commitment. More information and essential contacts can be found in the tabs below.

You have the right to feel safe where you learn and it is the responsibility of every learner and every member of staff to:

• Respect other people’s right to safety
• Not to hurt or abuse others
• Not to threaten others

If you have a concern, have witnessed or have knowledge of abuse, please contact a member of our safeguarding team, below.

Prevention of radicalisation

The Prevent strategy seeks to support people who are vulnerable to radicalisation. The strategy has three main objectives which are:

• Ideology: respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it;

• Individuals: prevent people from being drawn into terrorism/radicalisation and ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support;

• Institutions: work with a wide range of sectors (in particular education, faith, health, the internet and criminal justice) where there are risks of radicalisation which we need to address.

More information can be found in the Safeguarding and prevention of radicalisation policy

Learn about Safeguarding and Prevent in our 2016/17 learner induction video.

If you believe that someone is vulnerable to being exploited or radicalised, please follow the established safeguarding procedures by contacting one of the WAES safeguarding team, above.

Stay safe online with the 5 Ts:



I will use all technology including mobile phones, games consoles, tablets and computers safely and respectfully when sharing information with others


I will take time to think before posting messages and images that could be hurtful or embarrassing to myself or others. 

Take care

I will take care on the internet as I understand that some things and people are not what they seem


If things get tricky and I become uncomfortable, I will leave the site and ignore comments or emails.


I will tell someone if I am worried about anything that has happened while I have been online.
