The college also aims to equip students with the life skills they need to keep thrm safe through the SMSC and PSHE, the curriculum as well as by promoting a caring, safe environment within the college.

Where there are concerns the college works in partnership with other agencies, keeps confidential records and makes referrals as required.

The college is aware of children who are Missing from Education and make every possible effort to locate these children as we recognise this is a potential indicator of abuse or neglect. The college actively supports the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

All visitors and volunteers will be asked to wear an identification badge which must remain visible at all times.
