Safeguarding

Our top priority at Oakley College is the safeguarding of our young people. We follow safer recruitment legislation and guidance for all staff and volunteers and have access to expertise within our Local Authority and other specialist agencies and services. All staff receive safeguarding and prevent training as part of their induction. If you, or your Son/Daughter have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads.
