All staff including teaching, non-teaching, temporary and supply staff, college governors, parents, clerical staff, volunteers, contractors and those working with students and families in the community, have a statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of students.
The commitment in the College’s mission statement to “...enable all its students to achieve their greatest potential...” requires that the College is one in which students feel safe and secure.
It is important that all students can access the appropriate response, and necessary support should they be subject to external or internal threats to their safety and well-being.
The College work with a number of external agencies wherever necessary in accordance with legislation. Examples are Educational Mental health practitioners, Trailblazers, Mind, the Metropolitan police and the NHS.
Through our tutorial, assembly and ‘Ethics in a Catholic context’ programme, we discuss safeguarding issues with our students to ensure that they are aware of how to keep themselves safe.
If you have any issues or concerns of a sensitive or safeguarding nature, or if you have any physical or mental health concerns relating to your son/daughter, please pass them directly to our safeguarding team.
