New staff and student relationship policy – guidance available

January 20th, 2021

The new Staff Personal Relationship Policy and Staff & Student Personal Relationships Policy were launched in December 2020 and are now live.

Guidance has also been developed to support managers receiving declarations from staff.

All staff are reminded to read the policies and ensure that they declare any relationships that they have with staff or students using the forms provided.

The policies reflect the changed culture within the higher education sector, and provide a clear framework outlining expectations on the professionalism of staff.

There are two key underpinning principles which have informed the policies. Firstly, the policies aim to provide a safe environment for our students and staff, and place their well-being at the heart of our considerations.

Secondly, the policies aim to support principles of trust and integrity in our decision making.

All relationships need to be declared to line managers during January and February 2021 – even if they have been declared previously.
