Newbury College recognises that some students and staff may be at risk from radicalisation. Newbury College will assess the risks of violent extremism, which represents the greatest threat at national level, while recognising that other forms of violence and extremism can and do manifest themselves within other nearby colleges and / or training providers.
On this basis, the College has developed with its students, staff, governors and visitors a strong culture of respect and a safe place of learning. It is in this context that the College has considered its Prevent Duty and recognises the importance of working with staff, governors, the local authority, the police, the local safeguarding board, health professionals, local Prevent experts and others to identify and to safeguard vulnerable students and staff in the College.
Social media and online safety
You may have heard a lot in the news about cyber-bullying and social media misuse. Online sites and mobile apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Kik, etc have given young people new ways to communicate and get involved with other people on a truly global scale.
We encourage students to behave responsibly online and when using social media platforms through our tutorial programme and special "stay safe" events. Misbehaviour by text message or online is treated just as seriously as any other.
