One of our main priorities is to ensure Priestley is a safe environment in which to work and learn. The safety of our students and staff is paramount as well as that of anyone who visits the campus.

A basic practice is that everyone on site wears an ID badge – including visitors – and we challenge anyone who is seen not wearing a lanyard.

All members of the college community share a responsibility to promote each other’s welfare.

Anyone with concerns should report them to the safeguarding team.

It is our policy to provide prompt action to protect our students and young people from physical, sexual and emotional harm.

We also educate students about the risks from CSE, substance misuse, online activity, FGM, peer to peer abuse, county lines activity and radicalisation.

If you have any safeguarding concerns please email
