(Safeguarding and Prevent)
At Morley College London we have a team of trained professionals at each centre who are there to keep you safe and well. We want all our students to fell that they can come to college and not feel anxious or afraid because of things that are happening to them either at college or at home.
You can talk to any member of college staff about any concerns you have. Everyone at the College is here to help, they don’t have to be a member of the safeguarding team to listen to your concerns. If you or one of your classmates is at risk, please let us know. We can help.
The safeguarding team can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org They will respond to your email between the hours of 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday when the college is open.
Report an incident or concern
If you would like to report an incident or concern anonymously you can do so via the Whisper Form which can be found at: https://www.morleycollege.ac.uk/whisper-reporting/
The safeguarding team can help if you:
• Feel threatened
• Are being bullied
• Are being harassed
• Are being abused or neglected
• Are being exposed to radicalisation or extremism
The team will support you and provide you with the appropriate advice and help.
