Our College recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of students.
We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where young people are respected and valued. We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow our procedures to ensure that young people receive effective support, protection and justice.
We have put together the information below to explain how we meet our safeguarding and child protection responsibilities. We have also included some tips to help you to keep your child safe.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, where a majority of students and apprentices are not attending college for face to face teaching, the College continues to be fully committed to ensuring our students are safe. You can view the relevant guidance here.
