Policy Statement

Nacro maintains a zero-tolerance approach to any forms of abuse including bullying, whether online and/or in person, sexual harassment, and violence, racist, sexist, and homophobic (or any other trans-related phobias) behaviour and abuse.

Students and staff are encouraged to report any concerns or issues, however small, to a trusted member of staff and/or the Designated Safeguarding Officer (DSO) so that appropriate and timely action can be taken, and relevant support offered. The Designated Safeguarding Lead for Education will always be informed of concerns raised through Nacro’s internal alert system.
