Tresham is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its students. Each student’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some students may be especially vulnerable to abuse or may fall outside the legal definitions, which might include those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, those living in adverse circumstances, students in care or leaving care, offenders and ex-offenders, and students who are themselves carers.

We are committed to ensure that we

  • Provide a safe environment for children and young adults to learn
  • Identify children and young adults who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm and deals appropriately with each individual
  • Take appropriate action to see that children and young adults are kept safe both at home and college
  • Treat information relating to the welfare of students confidentially
  • Actively promote healthy lifestyles to our students ensuring that they can make informed decisions about their wellbeing
  • Raise awareness of and actively promote a whole college approach to the safe environment
  • Promote and celebrate British Values

Tresham has a dedicated team for Safeguarding. The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Fiona Phillip, Director of Customer Services.
