Huddersfield New College recognises its’ statutory responsibility to safeguard the welfare of its’ students and to ensure that relevant and effective safeguarding policies and procedures are in place and are actively promoted within College to do so.
Where concerns are raised about an individual student’s safety, welfare and/or well-being, the College will do its’ utmost to help and support the individual student with these concerns, but there may be instances where the concerns are such that they need to be forwarded to the local Children’s Services Department and appropriate external agencies for their consideration, help and support.
A range of personnel are available in College to help and support students with their safety, welfare and/or well-being concerns. These include:
• Progress Tutors
• Senior Progress Tutors
• Student Well- Being Manager
• Student Well-Being Champions
• High Needs Manager
• Director of Safeguarding
• Director of Pastoral
• Senior Director of Additional Learning Support
• Vice Principal Student Support, Guidance and Progression
If these concerns are of a safeguarding nature, students are advised, in the first instance, to talk to:
• their Progress Tutor
• any member of the Safeguarding Team
(Posters of the Safeguarding Team are displayed prominently around College, and the team is also shown below)
The College’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy is reviewed and updated annually, as relevant, by the College’s Senior Leadership Team, and reviewed and approved by the College’s Corporation. Click here to access this policy.
