Ensuring the safety and well-being of students at Meadowbrook College is our top priority and, therefore, we have policies and procedures which surround the issue of safeguarding young people.
Safeguarding means that we aim to ensure the well-being of students both emotionally and physically, and will take steps in order to ensure that you are not at risk, either personally or from others.
At Meadowbrook College we have a team approach to safeguarding, and students with concerns should speak to any one of our memebers of staff but we do have a designated Safeguarding Team specially trained to help you if you would like to talk to someone specifically.
The Safeguarding Team Leaders are as follows:
Nicola Partridge, Headteacher
- Jacqui West, Deputy Headteacher all programmes but named DSL Ambrose House (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Susy Morgan - West Bar (email@example.com)
- Ryan Lloyd - Next Step (firstname.lastname@example.org)
