The policy of safeguarding, and its associated procedures and protocols, is based on the principles that are at the heart of UTC Plymouth. We aim to promote an environment which values the students and staff who work within the organisation. We aim to build self-esteem, model conflict resolution, protect the weak and are committed to justice and support for those who need it. Mutual respect and trust are central to the ethos of the UTC.
Please telephone the College during school hours to speak to one of the Safeguarding Team on telephone 01752 284250
Please note that we cannot keep safeguarding concerns about students confidential and may need to pass information onto Children’s Social Care or the Police to investigate further.
