Brooklands College holds as one of its highest priorities the health, safety and welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in courses or activities, which come under the responsibility of the College. The College has a statutory and moral duty to commit to practices that protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect or significant harm. This includes safeguarding students from the risk of being drawn into terrorism, in line with the statutory duty in the Counter Terrorism Security Act 2015.
The College’s policy is that safeguarding its entire people, both students and staff, will be central to all it does. This covers all matters connected with students and staff having a safe learning and/or working environment, ensuring that they know how to keep themselves safe and that they feel safe. It pays particular regard to the welfare of young people under the age of 18 and to that of vulnerable adults.
Everyone has a responsibility to keep children, young people and vulnerable adults safe. Whether you are a student, member of staff, parent/carer, visitor or even a member of the public, if you have any non-urgent concerns about a student or a member of staff at the college, please contact the Safeguarding Lead on the phone number or email address above. If you are a student, you can also speak to your tutor or any other member of staff who will pass on your concern to a Safeguarding Officer in your department or to the Safeguarding Lead.
If you have a urgent concern and feel that you or someone you know is at risk of harm, harming themselves or others please contact the college reception on 01932 7970700 alternative you can call the C-Spa day or night, details below
