Safety & Welfare

At ALD Group Ltd, we develop learning environments where students can feel safe and valued. We recognise we will be working with vulnerable children and young people who are likely to be at considerable risk. Ensuring the safety of our students through rigorous safeguarding procedures is of paramount importance.

We have extensive safeguarding policies and effective practice, which protects students from abuse and other risks including child sexual exploitation and radicalisation. Our staff are all subject to enhanced DBS checks and receive regular up to date training around managing abuse, recognising signs of abuse and radicalisation. We work closely with the local authority Safeguarding Team to ensure the student receives support from the appropriate party.
