CMC has overall responsibility for the students in its care and therefore we take their welfare very seriously. We use the term ‘student’ to describe all people who participate at CMC, including children and young people under the age of eighteen.
In our provision for students CMC will ensure that:
The welfare of the student is paramount.
All students have equal opportunities, regardless of ability, religion, culture, gender, ethnic origin or class.
Academic programmes and activities are provided, appropriate to their age, maturity and the college’s location, which will encourage each student to develop linguistically, socially and culturally.
Tolerance, understanding and positive interaction is encouraged between students, as is a regard for each other’s privacy and possessions.
Students develop a responsibility for themselves, for others and for their environment.
All students, whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and/or sexual identity have the right to protection from abuse*
We raise awareness of student protection issues.
All staff have a responsibility to report any concerns to the Managing Director.
*The term ‘abuse’ includes incidents of harassment, bullying, actual or threatened violence, damage to personal property, and verbal or other abuse based on racial, sexual or religious differences.
