Safeguarding

Safeguarding is of the up most importance for us at The Beacon Plus we pride ourselves in ensuring that all our students are protected and educated in safe practices and behaviour. all students have access to support and guidance either through one of their lectures or support staff. Another action we have taken to support their mental health is that all of our students participate in a Mental First Aid course, where they learn about stress, depression and recovery.

All staff have had safeguarding training and have been vetted with a DBS before starting with us.

If you have any concerns regarding any of our students please do not hesitate to contact us.
