DBS and Safeguarding

DBS Checks

We always scrutinise applications for working with our pupils through DBS checks to ensure adults - paid or voluntary, working at FHEC are not barred from doing so.


Every member of voluntary and paid staff are expected to undertake stringent Safeguarding training to ensure the safety of each and every member of our pupil community. Robust Whistleblowing policies are in place and the school is acutely aware of the procedures regarding Child Protection and safeguarding each young person.
