We seek to develop and improve our safeguarding policies and procedures continuously. We encourage an ‘open culture’ where any concern can be raised, however small it may seem, and where all members of the College community contribute to effective safeguarding practices.

‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility’

Marlborough College School of English and Culture is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share in this commitment. We actively listen to all pupils and always take seriously what they tell us. Our aim is for all pupils to enjoy their time at the College and feel safe and secure.

Staff and pupils will know how to report any safeguarding concerns during their stay and a team of safeguarding specialists will be available for the duration of Summer School to deal with issues as and when they arise.

All staff working at Marlborough College Summer School and the School of English and Culture will be vetted by our safer recruitment practices and be through a DBS check (Disclosure & Barring Service).  All staff will have undertaken relevant safeguarding training both online and in-person before commencing employment.

Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy is reviewed annually, in line with key statutory guidance, primarily Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE). 

The College works with the Wiltshire Safeguarding Vulnerable People Partnership, and other external statutory agencies, including attending meetings of the Wiltshire Safeguarding Forum. The College contributes to an annual schools’ safeguarding audit carried out by Wiltshire Council. 

Please contact Mrs Rachael Staines (DSL) Designated Safeguarding Lead for Marlborough College Summer School and School of English and Culture at restaines@marlboroughcollege.org with any questions or concerns.
