John Leggott College recognises its moral and statutory duties of care to promote and safeguard the welfare of all learners. It is really important to us that our students feel safe, supported and happy here at John Leggott College. Within college we have a team dedicated to making sure that students are mentally, physically and emotionally healthy. The team work closely with teaching and pastoral staff to aid and support our learners.

The team also works closely with a number of external organisations to make sure our students get the best advice possible. These services can be accessed at any point from enrolment to completing college.

As part of our commitment to keeping our students safe, all students, staff and visitors have to wear identification in the form of a photographic lanyard (which is also used to release printing and use the library system), and there’s a security team circulating the campus to ensure only students, staff and registered visitors are onsite.

Our college Safeguarding Officers also work alongside the Well-being Team and liaise with external agencies/organisations to make sure that our students are safe, both at the college and in their home life.

Claire Holmes is the Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Katie Barker is a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Emily Watkinson is a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.
