Safeguarding & Prevent

We have put relevant and effective safeguarding practices in place to make sure that our students feel safe and secure both in college and whilst enjoying college-related activities. We also encourage students and staff to talk to a member of our dedicated Safeguarding team about concerns they may have regarding health, safety and welfare. Alternatively, they can raise a concern online, via our our Moodle system.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

At Richard Taunton, we celebrate inclusion, equality and diversity by welcoming students and staff from all backgrounds and origins.

Our aim is to:

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Act
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not share it
  • Foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not share it

We will do this by:

  • Ensuring we are effective in sending our strong, clear messages (internally and externally) to a diverse range of audiences about our commitment to diversity
  • Ensuring that people at all levels within our organisation are enhancing their learning around equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Providing a welcoming environment which is accessible and accommodating of all stakeholders’ diverse needs
  • Not tolerating bullying, discrimination and harassment, and having related procedures which are effectively implemented and understood
  • Committing to continuous improvement by building equality, diversity and inclusion into our long-term strategic plans and short-term goals.
