Kirkby College is committed to safeguarding their students and staff. Safeguarding is the responsibility of all staff. We have a statutory duty to report any incidents where we have cause to suspect that a child is suffering or is likely to suffer significant harm.

Staff receive regular training and updates and are advised of the signs and symptoms to look for. Further information is available in our safeguarding policy, which can be found here.
