Weekly News and Information W/C 22nd Sept
Keeping our college safe
Our college is a safe place - our students tell us!
Your College ID
We ask all of our students to wear their ID in college at all times. This is to ensure our college stays a safe place, and that we can identify anyone who should not be in student only areas. If you have any concerns about wearing your ID, please speak to your tutor. If you need a different type of ID holder (e.g. a clip or arm band) go to reception /Information and Guidance who will arrange it for you. Staff will ask to see your ID if you aren’t wearing it visibly. If you want more information on staying safe in college, text Safe to 81025.

Who's in charge? You or the anger? And who will suffer the consequences???
Anger can feel frightening, can make you feel like you need to take action, and can reduce your inhibitions. Alongside this, your body is often filled with adrenaline, which is the body's way of responding to the angry thoughts you are having.
1. Notice the first signs of anger
2. Stop, breathe slowly- breathe out more than in, believe it or not this is calming
3. Count to ten. Once something has been done you can't take it back.
4. No drugs or alcohol - drugs and alcohol removes inhibitions
5. Regular physical activity really does help.
No matter how good a reason you give yourself for losing your temper, once you have committed an act of violence, or acted in an angry or confrontational way, this cannot be undone. We do not tolerate acts of anger or aggression in college under any circumstances, therefore if you feel you need support to manage your feelings, please come and talk to us. We can offer advice, guidance and can even help you to access counselling or help outside of college.
We don't accept or tolerate bullying
Our policies on Anti Bullying, and on Student Misconduct
