Student Safeguarding Team

Orchard Hill College has set up its very own Student Safeguarding Team. Students have met with Safeguarding Lead, Kirsty Cottrell, individually at their centres to discuss projects such as local advocacy boards and groups, safeguarding and e-safety, student-accessible posters in centres and safeguarding sessions with their peers.

This term, for the first time, the ambassador from each centre met at Quadrant House to meet each other to discuss all the things they have been doing in their centres. They put the world to rights and came up with lots of positive things to take back to their centres.

Evie, a student from Wyvern House, said: “today was so much fun. I had such a great time meeting all the other ambassadors, everyone was so inspirational!”

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
