Children and young people have a right to expect the College to provide a safe and secure environment and a fundamental right to be protected from harm.

This means everyone who comes into contact with children, young people and their families, including those who do not have a specific role in relation to safeguarding children, have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.

If you are concerned about risk of harm to a young person or vulnerable adult, please contact:

Mark Nettle, Designated Safeguarding Lead on 01278 441247 or email
