Safeguarding

Safeguarding is our number one priority

Here at Landmarks, we are committed to doing everything we can to make sure all of our learners and staff are kept safe and protected from harm. This is what safeguarding is all about. The government provides statutory guidance to colleges on what they need to do to achieve this. We adhere to all guidance and pride ourselves on going above and beyond to make college a safe, happy and thriving environment for all. It is important to us that all college users are treated with respect and dignity and feel safe and listened to.
