Safeguarding & Prevent

Safeguarding

The College takes its responsibilities for safeguarding very seriously. If, for any reason, you have concerns for your own safety or well-being, or the safety or well-being of others, you should report these concerns to a member of staff. These concerns could be in relation to physical, emotional or sexual abuse, neglect, sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation, radicalisation, forced and honour-based violence, peer-to-peer abuse, domestic violence or e-safety for example.

The College has policies for safeguarding & prevent and e-safety, which are available as downloads from the student zone of the College website. The Designated Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection/Safeguarding is:

Jamie Staddon – Vice Principal (H117 Hampton) – jamie.staddon@solihullsfc.ac.uk

Other members of our Safeguarding Team are:
Nancy Troman – Deputy DSL (H421 Hampton) nancy.troman@solihullsfc.ac.uk
Bobbie Pidgeon – Mental Health Lead (B722 Blythe)
Louise Dale-Barron – Assistant DSL (B706 Blythe)
Trevor Irving – Assistant DSL (Room B707 Blythe)
Caroline Sweeney – LAC Lead (M207 Malvern)

Prevent

Under the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015, the College has a legal duty to work to prevent young people from being drawn into terrorism and extremism. If you have any concerns, either in relation to your own situation, or that of other students, please speak to any member of staff, who will refer you to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads.
