We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our students under the age of 18. We have developed a Safeguarding Policy on Child Protection and Vulnerable Adults that aims to meet these duties.
The policy includes child protection, prevention of bullying, harassment and discrimination, dealing with attendance issues and meeting the needs of sick students and security.
If you, as a student here have any concern about your wellbeing, safety or rights, then you should:
- Talk to any members of staff
- Talk to your personal tutor.
- Talk to staff in the Student One Stop.
Talk to the person below from the Safeguarding team at Somerset College:
Pat Griffin: Learning Support Tutor
Telephone: 01823 366 525
In the event that you are unable to speak to her please contact Somerset Direct on 0845 345 9122
Safeguarding our students is of vital importance to us. You should let the College know straight away if you have any concerns about your welfare or the welfare of another student.
We will treat all our students with the respect they deserve and expect our students to show the maturity and responsibility of adults when they are at Somerset College.
