Helping us to help you

Students should feel confident to approach any member of staff if they are worried, distressed or in difficulty of any form. All information will be given due respect and attention and will be acted on as appropriate. Whilst your rights to confidentiality will always be respected, there may be occasions when it is necessary for staff to contact external agencies, or your parents/carers.

All students are encouraged to declare any additional support requirements, health and mobility concerns, and mental health issues at the earliest stage possible. This would also apply to the experience of the care sector and caring responsibilities.

  • A visual impairment such as blindness or partial sight;
  • A hearing impairment such as deafness or partial hearing;
  • A long-term illness or health condition which may involve pain or cause fatigue, loss of concentration or breathing difficulties 鈥 including any effects from taking associated medication;
  • A mental health condition, challenge or disorder such as anxiety or depression;
  • A social, behavioural or communication impairment like an autistic spectrum condition or Tourette鈥檚 syndrome;
  • A physical impairment or challenges with mobility such as climbing stairs or uneven surfaces, or dexterity such as using a keyboard or laboratory equipment;
