The most important thing for our children is their safety. We foster a culture of vigilance amongst staff, students, parents and visitors. We always listen to children and take their concerns seriously. Please do not ‘wait and see’ - if you have any concerns please contact the College immediately or use the ‘Tell Someone’ link below. The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) at the College is Mrs West (Assistant Principal) and the Child Protection Officers are Mrs Barendt and Mr Tugwell.

Frome College monitors and filters the internet and computer usage within the school to safeguard and protect the students who attend. Please be aware of any Apps which can be installed on to tablets and mobile phones that enable students to circumnavigate our internet monitoring and filtering system, as this can put your child at risk.
