For most students, University life is a rich and fulfilling experience; however for others, issues around their health, conduct and wellbeing may impact on their ability to study. Student support services at Middlesex University are accessible to all students and provide a wide range of pastoral care and support. However, there are times when intervention by staff or other students is required.
The Cause for Concern Procedure has been designed to provide all University staff and students with simple and clear guidance on what to do should they be concerned about a student. The Cause for Concern Procedure should be followed for concerns such as health, wellbeing, conduct, safety or vulnerability which can affect a student’s academic engagement.
If you are concerned about a fellow student you are encouraged to take note and seek advice.
Report any concerns by calling the University on 0208 411 6200 and asking to speak to the Duty Safeguarding Officer. Safeguarding Officers are on duty Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. Outside of these times concerns should be reported to security on 0208 411 6200.
The outcome following stage 2 of the procedure will be to follow one of the following policies and/or procedures:
The Cause for Concern procedure and safeguarding policies of the University also relate to our Prevent Duty briefing note.
