DN Colleges Group expects acceptable conduct at all times. We want to be sure that all our members of our College community have an enjoyable, safe and successful time while learning.
All staff, students and Apprentices have a responsibility to promote and maintain our supportive, safe and respectful environment.
We do not tolerate any form of bullying, victimisation or harassment. Students or Apprentices behaving in this way will be subject to the Learning and Behaviour disciplinary procedure.
We will support students – both the perpetrator and target – at every stage and can offer restorative work where appropriate.
We also expect our students and Apprentices to behave as responsible citizens in their own communities, whilst respecting the rule of law.
If you are have a concern about bullying, harassment and victimisation please report it using the form on this page.
Restorative practice is a term used to describe interactions and conversations which help to build and maintain positive, healthy relationships, resolve difficulties and repair harm where there has been conflict.
We know sometimes there can be difficulties in groups, conflict between friends and misunderstandings with peers. The Student Union Team are committed to offering impartial mediation to help students resolve conflicts and learn from the experience. Students can request this service as can Tutors and other staff. All students will be offered support regardless of their role in the conflict. Meetings are facilitated by skilled staff to create an environment where students can share their thoughts and feelings in a way which is constructive. The focus of these meetings is to build relationships, solve specific problems or repair harm where there has been conflict.
We want to all work in an environment where we all feel safe and supported but we know this isn’t always straightforward. We are committed to resolving issues and guiding our students through this process.
