College Update: Important information for students & parents
Every Student Matters
At Cardinal Newman College every student really does matter, and parents and carers should be aware that the College will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety and well being of its students. If you are worried about a student you can contact the Pastoral Support Team (Achievement Tutors, Senior Tutors and Directors of Students) at the College.
We recognise the damage that can be caused by bullying, in all its forms and have a zero tolerance policy towards any behaviour that causes anxiety or distress to others. We regard each person as worthy of the utmost respect.
Child Protection and the Curriculum
The College curriculum can play a part Safeguarding. The College offers this in RE and the Tutorial programme, where related issues may be highlighted in a sensitive and reflective way. Awareness is raised about the risks of different kinds of abuse and young people are taught skills they need to help them keep safe and to feel that they can speak to members of staff should they have concerns of this nature.
Cardinal Newman College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people within the ethos and context of it’s mission. We fully recognise the contribution the College can make to protect and support students. We recognise that high self-esteem, confidence, peer support and clear lines of communication with trusted adults helps all students, and especially those at risk of suffering abuse.
