We are committed to the wellbeing of learners and staff and we have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of students through the creation and maintenance of a healthy and safe learning environment and promotion of the ‘Safe Learner’ and ‘Healthy FE’ concept.
The Principal and Board of Governors recognise their responsibility in ensuring arrangements are in place to safeguard and promote the welfare of all staff and students but especially those of children (under 18) and vulnerable adults (those over 18 with a reduced capacity to give informed consent due to a mental condition, disability or illness). The governing body has appointed a designated governor for Safeguarding and Health, Safety & Wellbeing to work with College staff to monitor compliance and promotion of good practice.
Safeguarding is what we do for all learners and Child Protection is what we do for children and young people who have been harmed or are at significant risk of being harmed.
Our Pastoral Mentors are based in The Hex and if you are concerned about your own well-being, or are in an unsafe position, the team are available during the College day; Mon-Fri 8.30am - 4.30pm, please come talk to them.
If you need to speak with someone outside of these hours, support is available from KOOTH - an online counselling and emotional wellbeing service.
We are all spending more time on-line these days; conversations are taking place using video apps and lots of us are using a wide range of social media platforms to stay in touch with friends and family. So, it is more important than ever to ensure that you protect yourself from negative influencers and stay safe.
We have provided some useful links below, but if you have any concerns please come along and speak to us on campus in The Hex.
