Working with you to safeguard students’ welfare

St Brelade’s College has a duty of care to children and young people attending the school and aims to ensure that staff, group leaders, accommodation providers and other suppliers help to keep them safe.

What’s included in our safeguarding policy

  • Providing a safe environment for young people to learn in education.
  • Informing all St Brelade’s College staff of their responsibilities when working with children or young people.
  • Ensuring that all members of staff are aware if any student is a child or young person and that staff are also aware of any consequent procedure(s) which are applicable.
  • Identifying children or young people who are suffering or are likely to suffer significant harm and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are safe in their homestays, at  school, at any other St Brelade’s College supervised event.

Safeguarding awareness course

Hosts are required to complete the online Safeguarding Awareness Course. Please provide the school with a copy of your certificate.

The course is provided by the West Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board as currently Jersey does not offer an online safeguarding course.  Therefore if you are concerned about a child’s welfare or believe a child is at risk of abuse, it is important that you use the local contact numbers and procedures provided in the St Brelade’s College Safeguarding policy and also provided by the Jersey Safeguarding Partnership Board to report any concerns you may have. For raising concerns about the immediate safety or welfare of a child call 519000 (MASH) or for an adult call 444440 (SPOR).
