Support for Under 18s

Castle School has a responsibility to provide a safe & healthy learning environment for all students and staff but especially for students under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults.

Castle School will help to keep children and young people safe by contributing to providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn, identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe.

However, it is important that you understand that we cannot supervise under 18s at all times during their stay. A consent form must be signed and this will acknowledge that under 18s have a degree of freedom and autonomy and will not be supervised outside class, organised activities and at weekends. Under 18 students will also be expected to travel to school independently and consent from a parent or guardian will also be required for this.

Castle School is committed to ensuring and promoting the safeguarding of learners who are involved in courses or activities which come under the responsibility of the school. Should you require further details or clarification before booking an under 18 student on a course at Castle School please contact the school directly for further information.
