All Aston University Staff, Student Ambassadors and any external staff involved with SCL events will have received, read and signed a code of conduct agreeing to adhere to the guidelines of the Aston University SCL Child Protection Policy. All SCL Staff have CRB checks in place and there is also an appointed Departmental Child Protection Officer. If you have any queries about the SCL Child Protection Policy, please contact the member of SCL staff coordinating your event.
SCL has a generic risk assessment in place for all of its Aimhigher and G&T events taking place on campus. You can find a copy of the risk assessment in the download documents section at the bottom of this page.
We would ask that any institution visiting the campus as part of an organised Aimhigher event coordinated by SCL, should read, sign and return the risk assessment to the relevant SCL member of staff coordinating your event at least one week prior to the event taking place. If we do not hear from you, we will assume that you are satisfied that all issues have been covered within the risk assessment. If there is anything that you feel has been omitted from the risk assessment please do not hesitate to contact your SCL coordinator and we can work to resolve the issue. Any further information related to the visit will be given to accompanying school staff on the day of the event.
