Safeguarding and report a concern
RADA has a Safeguarding Policy to ensure a safe creative learning environment and to support and promote the welfare of our community (students, staff, participants and visitors).
We believe all individuals have a right to learn and develop within a safe environment, and are committed to protecting young people and vulnerable adults from harm.
Download our Safeguarding Policy which outlines our policy and procedures for maintaining a safe working environment.
RADA's Safeguarding Officer is Angela Taylor (Registrar). Angela holds overall responsibility for safeguarding at RADA. The Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mike Bryant (Head of Student Wellbeing) and Sarah Agnew (Deputy Registrar, Admissions and Student Services). Mike, Angela and Sarah work with a Safeguarding Group and with colleagues across RADA.

This is not an exhaustive list. If something is causing you concern personally or you are concerned for someone else, let us know. We want to help.
Whether you are a student, staff member, parent or any other contact of RADA you can report a concern either anonymously, or with your contact details so we can follow up with you. If you make a report anonymously RADA will log, monitor and follow up where possible or appropriate.
