Procedures for Managing Child Safety Incidents or Concerns at or Involving the College

Complaints about “child safety incidents or concerns” that are alleged to have occurred on College premises or at College events are managed in a different way to other complaints received by the College.

These kinds of complaints are instead managed using the same procedures that we use for managing incidents of or internal reports about this kind of behaviour.
