Child Protection

All staff at Bunclody Vocational College are committed to promoting student welfare and to the safeguarding of all young people in our care. We aim to ensure that no young person is harmed, or placed at risk of harm, while in school, while engaging in school activities, or in their personal lives.
Our student’s welfare and best interests will always be our prime concern. We take positive measures to support young people who may need protection from any form of harm.

At BVC we ensure that all staff in our school understand their safeguarding roles and responsibilities. All staff are confident and skilled when it comes to safeguarding our students from harm and we take positive action to prevent anyone who might pose a risk to our students. We take stringent measures against any staff, associate, or visitor who could potentially perpetrate any act of violence or harm against our students. We have many layers of support in our school for students who require emotional support as we are very aware of the stresses that life can throw at our young people.

The Board of Management of Bunclody Vocational College has adopted as policy, the Child Protection Guidelines for Post-Primary Schools as published by the Department of Education & Science. The full text of this document is available at the following link.
