Taking Safeguarding Seriously

ALD Group Ltd, including Embleton View, are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this ,commitment. It is our aim that all students fulfil their potential.

ALD Group Ltd, and all staff who work for or represent take as our first priority the responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of our students, to minimise risk and to work together with other agencies to ensure rigorous arrangements are in place within our service to identify, assess, and support those children who are suffering harm and to keep them safe and secure whilst in our care.

The responsibilities set out in our policies apply (as appropriate) to all members of the company and school community including students, visitors/contractors, volunteers and trainees working within the company or school. It is fully incorporated into the whole company and school ethos and is underpinned throughout the teaching of the curriculum and within PHSCE and within the safety of the physical environment provided for the students.

“Schools and colleges and their staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children. This system is described in statutory guidance Working together to safeguard children. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.”
