HOSPITAL & OUTREACH EDUCATION SAFEGUARDING
Ensuring our pupils are kept safe and know how to keep themselves safe is a key priority for Hospital and Outreach Education. All staff, including peripatetic staff, have enhanced Disclosure and Barring Clearance and receive regular training to keep their knowledge of safeguarding up to date and relevant. This includes training in online safety, peer on peer abuse and how to prevent our pupils being sexually exploited or radicalised.

All school and pupil referral units have a duty to prevent children and young people from becoming radicalised. Children and young people with medical and mental health difficulties may be particularly at risk. HOE are aware of these risks and have strategies in place to help minimise the risk.
