Support During the Holidays

We are aware that some members of our college community may require more support at the moment due to post-pandemic challenges and the cost of living crisis. We believe it is our moral imperative to do everything we can to support our college community through these testing times. We have created the following booklet for your use during the May half term break. This booklet contains a wealth of information to ensure that you can access vital advice quickly and easily when you need it most. We are proud to offer all students and their families our Health Assured Support Service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year both online and using their freephone number (more information can be found within this booklet). We understand that emergencies do not always occur during normal working hours.

We encourage all students to reach out to us when they are experiencing challenges. When college is open, we have a dedicated safeguarding freephone number 0800 061 4222, please use this for raising any safeguarding concern, no matter how small it may seem.

We also offer a wide range of academic and welfare services, tailoring support to individual need. We have a long established strong safeguarding and welfare culture at WQE and never has it been so important to take care of each other.

We wish you a safe and restful break, and look forward to seeing our students on Monday 3rd June 2024.
