We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all students.
We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where young adults are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that young adults receive effective support, protection and justice.

Your Designated Safeguarding Leads
** College staff must record any concerns they have about students on MyConcern!
Safeguarding advice for staff, volunteers and visitors:
Our aim is to provide a safe and secure environment for our students, staff, volunteers and visitors. As a college we are committed to safeguarding and meeting the needs of our young people.
Security of students, staff and visitors:
All members of staff will wear photo identity badges on BLUE lanyards at all times.
All visitors should report to the college on arrival and sign the visitor book. Visitors will be issued with a lanyard which must be worn at all times.
All visitors to the college will be asked to produce photographic evidence of their identity (such as passport or driving licence) and the college reserves the right to refuse entry to the college if such proof of identity is not available.
The lanyards are colour coded as follows:
- RED: Visitor requires supervision at all times and must not be in any part of the college on their own.
- GREEN: Senior staff have seen and noted the visitor’s DBS. Visitors are on our Single Central Record and can be unsupervised.
If you have any concerns you must ensure that this information is passed to a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). You can ask a member of the college team to locate a DSL. You should not discuss the concern with anyone else other than a DSL.
All mobile phones must be switched off and must not be used whilst you are in college.
Creating Tomorrow College expects all staff and visitors to:
- Treat everyone with respect and dignity;
- Promote and model safe behaviour.
At Creating Tomorrow College the principles of Protective Behaviours are used. The two themes are:
- We all have the right to feel safe all the time;
- We can talk with someone about anything even if it feels awful or small.
If as a visitor, you have any concerns about a student’s wellbeing, management, welfare etc., we would like you to report this to a DSL.
If you have any concerns about any member of staff, this should be reported to the Executive Headteacher, Gareth Ivett, directly. Please ask a member of staff to locate him, or you can email him with your concern at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If the concern is about the Strategic Leader, please report this to the Chair of Trustees, Jeanette Payne at email@example.com
Don’t think “What if I am wrong?”
