Safeguarding and Prevent
We want everyone at the college to be and feel safe and consider the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults of paramount importance, we safeguard students and promote their welfare, safety and health by providing an open, caring, responsive and supportive learning environment which responds to needs immediately.
The college Designated Safeguarding Lead is Heather Clarke and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Dannii Donovan and Keira Hand who, along with their team are trained and able to support with safeguarding and Prevent concerns. The college uses a company called e-safe that monitors the usage of college IT equipment to ensure learners are keeping themselves safe whilst online. Where concerns are identified, the college Safeguarding Team will be notified.
