Safeguarding

To ensure all students are as safe as possible whilst not on the premises

College staff will remain vigilant to new and additional safeguarding concerns and act immediately to any issues that arise. CPOMs will be the main source of logging information on any safeguarding issues.
Checks on safeguarding and welfare information held on learners will be carried out for accuracy and updated where necessary.

To ensure CPOMS issues are followed up and dealt with effectively

All staff will record any issues and incidents on CPOMS. The DSL and Deputy will discuss these issues and direct to the appropriate person involved

To understand the risks surrounding each of the students

All students have been risk assessed and rag rated to ensure that their medical vulnerabilities have been considered. The students who have a red rating have been reassessed following discussions with the college nurse and other medical professionals. The college is following advice from the NHS relating to Aerosol Generating Procedures and those students who require this medical procedure. Parents have been informed and will be kept up to date following national guidance.

To ensure attendance at college is maintained and that if students do not attend their absence will be followed up

The DSL will complete safe and well checks for those students who do not attend college from September 4th, 2020.

The students are safe on the premises and all practicably risks have been assessed

A stringent Risk Assessment is in place assessing as many risks as possible in the college building whilst opening during the COVID-19 pandemic. The assessment will include, the arrival of students, how the day is structured, cleaning schedules and staffing arrangements.
