LSE is committed to creating an environment in which it is safe for children and young people to learn and grow. We value children and young people and promote an inclusive environment for all.
All LSE staff and students involved in the sessions receive appropriate training before the event. Staff or students working directly and regularly with young people on activities receive specific training on working with children, in line with our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy. They also undergo an appropriate level Disclosure and Barring Service check.
All activities which take place on the LSE campus are subject to a risk assessment before they take place. The widening participation team is happy to provide schools, colleges, and parents with copies of risk assessments for individual activities if requested.
