Children and young people have a right to expect the college to provide a safe and secure environment and a fundamental right to be protected from harm.
This means everyone who comes into contact with children, young people and their families, including those who do not have a specific role in relation to safeguarding children, have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.
Uxbridge College meets the requirements of the Prevent Duty and therefore seeks to safeguard students and staff from becoming radicalised or attracted to extreme or terrorist causes, and to keep them both safe and within the law.
Support for Parents
#AskTheAwkward aims to help parents and carers have regular conversations with their children about online relationships and more. The resource includes three short films created in a social experiment style, with real parents and their children to capture their reactions to a range of questions.

At Uxbridge College we take British Values seriously. Our former Student President, Eric Kim, created a video to show how important it is to demonstrate these values – especially at College.
