Our school is committed to safeguarding children and promoting children’s welfare. The Life Sciences UTC expects all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment. Everyone has a responsibility to act without delay to protect children by reporting anything that might suggest a child is being abused or neglected. It is our willingness to work safely and challenge inappropriate behaviours that underpins this commitment. The school seeks to work in partnership with families and other agencies to improve the outcomes for children who are vulnerable or in need.

In support of this we bring to your attention the information published by the DfE regarding their “Tackle Child Abuse” campaign.  This can be found at:
