Out of Hours Safeguarding

Print Page

The college has a Safeguarding Team who are always available during term time until 5.00 pm. After 5.00 pm, until the college closes, during term time, there is a Duty Manager on call who can deal with any concerns.  During the holidays, while the college is open, there is always a member of the Executive Team in the building.  One or more of the Safeguarding Team may also be available (although this cannot be guaranteed).

When a group of students is away on a trip or visit the Tutor in charge will take a college phone in order to be able to contact the college in an emergency. During any out of hours trips or activities the Tutor will have the contact number of their Curriculum Manager in the event of any emergency.

If you have any concerns of a safeguarding nature when the college is closed please use one of the following telephone numbers for the local Children’s Services teams.
