Safeguarding, Prevent and support for student welfare
Ensuring that our students are safe in their personal lives and in the community is critical to everything we do. The college will be providing continued advice and support to students who are considered to be vulnerable and for those who receive
free college meals and bursaries.
Safeguarding and Preventing Radicalisation and Extremism
If a student has a concern about themselves or another student, please contact safeguarding@UCG.ac.uk
All students that are subject to a Child Protection and Child in Need plan or are Looked After Children will be contacted at least once a week. We will keep in contact by teams, email or phone. Their social workers will be informed
of the situation that the college is in and the fact that conferences, core groups and professional meetings will either be conducted via email updates or dialling in to the meeting remotely.
We will aim to maintain contact with vulnerable learners, known to College Student Support teams by teams, email or phone, on a regular basis.
Contacting the Safeguarding Teams
If you need to contact a member of the safeguarding team, please contact safeguarding@UCG.ac.uk.
