UET Safeguarding Statement

Uplands Enterprise Trust (UET) recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our young people and adults (YP/A)

We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where all YP/A are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that YP/A receive effective support, protection, and justice. At UET we ensure that through our vision and values, we promote tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths, and lifestyles, and we actively celebrate diversity and inclusion. The Board of Trustees also ensure that this ethos is reflected and implemented effectively in Trust’s policies and practices, and that there are effective risk assessments in place to safeguard and promote our YP/A welfare. We have a duty to prepare our YP/A for life in modern Britain and to keep them safe. YP/A who attend our provisions have the right to do so in safety. We do not tolerate bullying of any kind and we will challenge derogatory language and behaviour towards others.

The purpose of the UET Safeguarding policy is to ensure the recruitment of both permanent and temporary (including voluntary) staff is conducted in a fair, effective, and economic manner. To achieve this purpose, those that are responsible for each stage of the recruitment process must demonstrate a professional approach by dealing honestly, efficiently, and fairly with all internal and external applicants. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an Enhanced DBS Check with a check of the DBS Barred List’

The following principles are encompassed in the UET safeguarding policy

  •  Ensure that the safeguarding and welfare of YP/A occurs at each stage of the recruitment process.
  • All applicants receive fair treatment and a high-quality service.
  • The job description and person specification are essential tools which will be used throughout the recruitment process.
  • Applicants will be recruited on their knowledge, experience and skills needed for the job.
  • At least one member of the panel must have undertaken the Safer Recruitment Training as is the statutory requirement.
  • Selection should be based on a minimum of a completed application form, shortlisting, and interview. References will always be followed up and any appointment is subject to satisfactory references being provided, one of which must be from the latest previous employer.
  • Regular monitoring and evaluation of the recruitment process should be carried out to assess its effectiveness and the impact on recruitment and retention, equality, and diversity.

Staff training

UET is committed to investing in staff training that allows staff members to develop their skills, knowledge, and experience. This will help our staff achieve their potential and assist UET in the achieving its strategic objectives and goals.

UET has 5 designated training days throughout the year to ensure a high-quality service offer for our Young People and Adults supported by professionals that are skilled and knowledgeable from UET, Brunel Academies Trust and other experts.
