Safeguarding & Wellbeing Support

Your wellbeing is important to us.

That is why we have a dedicated Wellbeing Team of highly-trained and experienced advisors.

The Safeguarding & Wellbeing Team works closely with Progress Coaches to help you overcome any issues affecting your well-being. They can provide support and advice on a wide range of issues including abuse, harassment, health, financial worries, personal issues and mental health.

We recognise that any student can experience problems from time to time, not necessarily related to their academic studies. The Safeguarding & Wellbeing Team are always on hand to discuss what may be troubling you in a safe, non-judgemental environment.

This could be:

  • Abuse
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Family issues
  • General health issues
  • Harassment
  • Mental health issues
  • Pregnancy

  • Axess Sexual health
  • Food Bank
  • Night Stop
  • Student Assistance Programme
  • Talking Matters
  • Youth Worker for drug and alcohol support

Safeguarding

It sets out the steps we take to protect children, and adults at risk and the procedures we would use to deal with any issues.

The Safeguarding Policy is approved by the Governors and Senior Management. Any student concerned about their own safety or the safety of another student should speak to their:
