Student safety and security within our college is incredibly important to us.
We employ a security team who are on-site whenever the college is open. They are all trained in safeguarding procedures.
All students and staff must wear visible ID passes when in and around the college. This ensures we know who is on-site at all times. Students are also educated on safeguarding during college inductions and receive a copy of the Staying Safe leaflet.
All college staff have valid DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) certificates to provide reassurances concerning criminal histories and suitability for working with young people. They also undergo safeguarding training as part of their induction.
We don’t accept bullying of any form within the college. We treat any cases of bullying very seriously.
We operate a zero-tolerance policy on the possession or use of drugs on college premises.
If you have any concerns about any of these issues, please get in touch with us.
