We want everyone at the College to be and feel safe. If you are worried about anything, talk to any member of staff that you trust or email: wellbeing@macclesfield.ac.uk. We have staff on site at all times to help you with any issues that you may have. Call into Student Central to talk to them.


If you feel you have been harassed or bullied - don’t put up with it. Tell someone, e.g. your course tutor or Learning Mentor. The College takes these matters very seriously and will investigate the issue on your behalf. If necessary the disciplinary procedures may be used to deal with bullying and harassment. If you do not feel able to talk, you can email: wellbeing@macclesfield.ac.uk. Details of our policy on bullying and harassment are available on the student hub.
Another aspect of safeguarding is the PREVENT duty, which requires the Further Education sector to have 'due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism', supporting terrorism or being drawn into non-violent extremism. There is a duty to ensure that those identified with vulnerabilities are given appropriate advice and support. The Government has defined extremism as “vocal or active opposition to fundamental British Values”, which include:
  • Individual Liberty
  • Rule of Law
  • Democracy
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs
This includes not discriminating against those with protected characteristics. You will cover Safeguarding and PREVENT topics in tutorial sessions.
