Safeguarding children and young people

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.

Child protection training is an essential part of the training programme for LSE staff and students who work with children and young people. This training is refreshed on a regular basis and all members of LSE staff working with children and young people are given a copy of the LSE Child Protection Policy before they start work.

LSE representatives who work with children and young people undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service check at the appropriate level before they begin. This applies to both staff and student volunteers in regular contact with young people.

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.  A copy of the Widening Participation team's child protection policy is available here.
