What does safeguarding mean?
We want you to feel safe at all times and if you don’t we want to help you!
You might feel unsafe if:
- Things aren’t ok at home
- You feel nervous or worried all of the time
- You’re in a relationship that scares you
- A friend is being harmed
- Someone is making you do things you don’t want to
We are here to help you:

East Coast College is committed to providing a supportive, friendly, safe and positive environment free from offensive behaviour. Bullying of any kind is therefore not tolerated and disciplinary action will follow.
Online safety applies to all areas of life – how we live, learn, and interact with others. The Safeguarding and Wellbeing team can offer support during office hours to anyone worried about the safety of themselves or others. In emergency situations, please call 999. The college has Smoothwall Firewall protection to help keep students using college devices and wifi safe. This is checked regularly and searches that raise concern are shared with the students and parents/carers.
The websites below can help you keep yourself and others safe, as well as provide advice and support if things go wrong.
