Student Support

At Carisbrooke College, we aim to be proactive in responding to the diverse learning, social and other needs of students.

Key Stage Directors of Progress, Heads of Faculties, dedicated teachers and learning support assistants take responsibility for the delivery of the curriculum in each faculty area. Staff are assigned to learning areas and work with students at all times of the day, including breaks and after school. The curriculum areas are closely supported by the Welfare Team where each Key Stage has a Behaviour Manager and an assistant to support students’ needs.

Each year group is subdivided into tutor groups. The role of the tutors is to have an overview of the students and to meet them every day in a tutorial session. Parents are encouraged to speak to their child’s form tutor if they have any concerns or, indeed, wish to share good news about their children.

Carisbrooke College Safeguarding Information

‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.’
Keeping Children Safe in Education – September 2016

Carisbrooke College fully recognises the responsibility we have to protect and support every student, member of staff and visitor, while at the same time needing to act in a professional manner in accordance with relevant statutory procedures.

We understand that safeguarding covers all situations where a student might be at risk of harm to their safety, health or welfare. This includes the full range of possible scenarios including, for example, neglect, instances of bullying, or even physical or sexual abuse.
The College is committed to ensuring that all staff are approachable and aware of how to deal with any potential difficult situations or disclosures, as well as how to pass the information on to designated staff.

The Designated Safeguaring lead for Carisbrooke College is Mike Peake. Alongside Mr Peake, there is a dedicated team who are able to offer assistance with any concerns or enquiries that you may have.

If You Don't Know, Don't Go
(West Yorkshire Police and Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership)
West Yorkshire Police and Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership have launched a campaign warning young people to be wary of invites to free parties from older people who they know little about.
A tactic used by perpetrators of child sexual exploitation is to lure children to parties through social media and word of mouth, where they then ply them with drinks and drugs before pressuring them into sex. They may also bribe them into doing things they aren’t comfortable with in return for a lift home, as the ‘party’ is often held in an area that the young person is unfamiliar with.
Advice to Young people
If you do accept an invitation to a party or gathering there are things that you need to do keep yourself safe:
• Make sure you know the location of where you’re going and whose party it is.
• Read the road signs if you accept a lift.
• Tell a trusted adult where you are going and who you’re going with.
• Tell someone what time you’re expected back.
• Make sure you have credit on your phone.
• Make sure your mobile battery is fully charged.
• Take enough money with you to get you home
