The Safer College Community group monitor safeguarding arrangements for our students and staff. The group is responsible for reviewing LMC site risk assessments and uses local intelligence from our community, external partners and other agencies to review the assessment and recommend action as necessary.
LMC has a simple ‘Report It’ system – if you are worried or concerned about anything, or something has happened – report it. This can be done via the college hub or by talking to any member of staff.
To discuss our safeguarding provision further, please contact our Safeguarding Manager on 01524 521382
In addition to staff from the College challenging on site visitors without a valid college ID, there are ad-hoc ID checks carried out by College Managers at least once a month at site entrances and communal areas. We also have close liaison with our local neighbourhood police officers and Police Partnership Manager.
LMC has a Site Supervision Team on site at all times during College opening hours. Their responsibilities include first response to incidents on site and monitoring CCTV. In addition, from 6.30pm -10.30pm (365 days a year) LMC employs a security company to ensure proactive foot patrols are conducted around the College estate.
LMC has a range of security measures in place to ensure that all students and staff remain safe and feel safe while at our College site.
CCTV is extensively situated around the College, both externally and internally in some buildings, for the purpose of crime prevention and public safety with a dedicated CCTV control space.
