Student Welfare Safeguarding


Makers is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students and staff. One of the main ways we do this is by ensuring that anyone involved with Makers is aware of our Safeguarding and Prevent policy and share this commitment.

Our aim is to ensure that staff are fully engaged in being vigilant about raising awareness and ensure that we work alongside agencies and professional bodies to ensure that our students and staff are safe from harm.

Across Makers, the accepted definition of Extremism is the following :

“ is vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. We also include in our definition of extremism calls for the death of members of our armed forces, whether in this country or overseas.”

There isn’t a place for Extremism at Makers of any kind. This applies to any part of the company including (& not limited to), staff, students, alumni, company community, suppliers, or contractors.

At Makers we see our company as a safe place for people can explore controversial issues safely and where our staff are trained to encourage and facilitate this. Makers has a duty to ensure this happens.
