University’s Safeguarding Policy reviewed and updated

March 8th, 2022

The university’s Safeguarding Policy has been reviewed, updated and approved by Senate on Tuesday 1 March 2022.

The policy is based on the principle that everyone has the right to work, learn and achieve their potential within a safe environment, without risk of harm from abuse, discrimination, harassment, assault or bullying, in all its forms and in any circumstances.

We are taking a whole-university approach to our policy and practice, embedding a culture of safeguarding in everything we do and ensuring that safeguarding is seen as everyone’s responsibility.

It is therefore essential that all staff are aware of the policy, how you might identify safeguarding concerns and what you should do about them.

Alongside the policy, there is a new UoN Safeguarding Resources SharePoint site, which includes the policy and a range of supporting information for all staff and volunteers.

The university will be working over the next few months to further develop the resources, update our training programme and develop a network of safeguarding leads.

Emma Rowsell is the new Director for Student and Campus Life and will be the University Designated Safeguarding Lead, with responsibility for the management and oversight of safeguarding concerns across the university.

If you have any safeguarding concerns, please see the information on what to do if you have safeguarding concerns for the details on who to contact, including the generic email address

Staff and students can also raise concerns and request support through the university’s Report & Support system.
