If you have a complaint or concern about anything, please speak to the Student Centre/HR immediately. The wellbeing of young people and vulnerable adults always come first and the College is committed to safeguarding our students with all staff expected to share this approach. 

The Safeguarding agenda incorporates Child Protection and concentrates on the all round welfare of the young person/vulnerable adult. Our aim is to detect, at the earliest possible opportunity, any indication that a young person/vulnerable adult is not thriving or failing to meet their potential.

We act on every concern, however small, and conduct regular risk assessments to ensure our site is as safe and secure as is practically possible. 

All concerns should be reported to the following people:

  • Easton Campus Student Services Manager - 01603 731219
  • Otley Campus Student Services Manager - 01473 784144

Encompass 2017 - 2018

At Easton and Otley College we are working in partnership with Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk Children’s Services to identify and provide appropriate support to pupils who have experienced domestic violence in their household; this scheme is called Operation Encompass. In order to achieve this, Norfolk Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub will share police information of all domestic incidents where one of our pupils has been present with the Designated Safeguarding Lead(s).

On receipt of any information, the Designated Safeguarding Lead will decide on the appropriate support the child requires, this could be silent or overt. All information sharing and resulting actions will be undertaken in accordance with the ‘Norfolk Joint Agency Protocol for Domestic Abuse – Notifications to Schools’. We will record this information and store this information in accordance with the record keeping procedures outlined in this policy.
