If you wish to report a concern of a child at risk of harm, abuse or neglect, you can contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mick Harkin, or any of our alternative DSLs on 01359 230885.

In case of an emergency outside of College hours (08:00 - 17:15), you can phone one of our staff on 07515 190335.

Alternatively, you can call one of the following:

  • Customer First on 0808 800 4005
  • The Police on 999
  • The NSPCC child protection helpline on 0808 800 5000

You can also find information and guidance on the Suffolk Local Safeguarding Children Board website at http://suffolkscb.org.uk/.

If you are struggling as a family and it concerns at least one of your children attending the College, then you may wish to complete a common assessment framework with your Assistant Principal Year Leader.  This process will help you work with people such as teachers, health staff and other lead professionals to gather, understand and share information about what is happening in your family's life and what solutions can be determined for you and your child(ren).  More information about this process can be found at https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/children-families-and-learning/common-assessment-framework-caf/common-assessment-framework-caf-information-for-families/#tab1
