Promoting a safe, inclusive environment where students thrive.

What is safeguarding at the University of Bath?

The Student Policy and Safeguarding unit manage safeguarding through proactive and reactive approaches, ensuring that the highest possible standards of safeguarding are maintained to allow students to thrive within an inclusive community.

Student wellbeing and protection - Office for Students

The Office for Students uses the term ‘safeguarding’ to cover a range of institutional responsibilities, policies and processes in areas including sexual misconduct, Prevent, student mental health, LGBTQ+ support and minority and international students and defines it as “systems, policies and cultures through which providers keep students safe from harm, and respond when incidents occur”.
