Safeguarding & Child Protection
Caring for and Safeguarding our STUDENTS
Caring for our students and ensuring their safety is at the heart of everything we do here at Blessed Thomas Holford. Therefore, safeguarding our students is treated as the highest priority at all times.
There is a dedicated team of staff to look after the welfare of the students. Every student here at Blessed Thomas Holford knows the routes to take if they have a problem, however small.
The college works tirelessly with other partners to ensure the pupils’ needs are met, and they have the correct, bespoke package of support for them individually.
