We believe that students are entitled to a learning experience that takes place in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. In addition, we consider that safe learning is essential to maximise students’ experience and achievement. A copy of our Safeguarding policy is available on request.

The Prevent Duty

Aspire Sussex, and all education providers, has a legal duty to report concerns about anyone who may be vulnerable to grooming or in danger of coercion to break the law. Reporting a concern does not criminalise the person reported. If s/he is being groomed, they are more likely to be supported by a range of partner organisations through the Channel programme and will not have a criminal record.

Health and Safety

Aspire Sussex always takes a sensible and proportionate stance on Health and Safety; focusing on real risk with potential to cause harm and we take our duty of care to you very seriously.

If you have any concerns relating to Safeguarding, Grooming or Health and Safety, please speak to someone in your local centre or contact Lynne Smith by calling 01444 810718 or 07753 457981, or by emailing lynne.smith@aspiresussex.org.uk.

‘Remember, if you don’t speak out, we can’t help.’
