At Landau Forte Charitable Trust, we are committed to keeping all of our young people safe in each of our academies. Tutors and parents are all too aware that young people can be vulnerable to influences, arguments and behaviour that are wrong. It is our job, working together, which will help us to protect our young people from such occurrences.
At Landau Forte Charitable Trust we do not want to stifle enquiry or speculation but we want to create a culture where this can be done in a safe manner.
Enabling young people to explore the issue of diversity in a safe and secure environment is extremely important and is something which we are very proud to provide.
We have well established safeguarding policies and procedures in place and we actively promote the welfare of our staff, students and visitors on-site and in the wider community.
Below you can find more information on how we safeguard young people in some key areas. Should you require any additional information about our safeguarding policies or procedures please contact us.

Promoting British Values
The DfE have recently reinforced the need to
“create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
The government set out its definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated by the Prime Minister this year.
Our integration of eSafety awareness across the curriculum enables us to discuss the sometimes difficult topics in a mature way that engages young people in all year groups. We are committed to ensuring the safety of our students in their use of modern technologies, including not only the PC, but also mobile phones and gaming.
Landau Forte College Derby have produced some materials with advice for protecting social media accounts.
