Safeguarding and Student Lanyards
We believe that it is always unacceptable for a student to experience abuse of any kind and we recognise that it is our responsibility to safeguard the welfare and wellbeing of all students. If you feel you are being bullied please talk to your tutor or come into student services and let us know so we can help you. We will do so through our safeguarding team and commitment to safe practices.
If you have any concerns over a child protection or safeguarding issue or need to talk, please call our Safeguarding team on 07507 767293. All concerns will be handled sensitively.
Counsellors are available should you need support in times of difficulty and personal matters. The counselling service provides an opportunity to talk in confidence about sensitive issues. Please call into the campus or student services for further help and support.
Lanyards and Badges
In order to keep everyone safe on site, at enrolment each student will be given a student ID and lanyard. It is college policy that lanyards MUST be worn at all times on College premises and any visitors must sign in and wear a visitor badge. Students have asked for this college rule to support safety for all on campus.
Your student badge gives you access to print. You will receive a printing credit when you first join and you can top this up throughout the year at the college shop if you need to. You also need it if you get free college meals as the money to pay for your meals is held on your card. Your student badge gives you some great discounts within the local area. Look out for places that advertise student discounts and be ready to show your card!
