South Bank UTC is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors. We promote a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns that they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others. We strive to make sure that every student in the UTC feels secure, well cared for, and able to reach their full potential.

We ensure all our own staff, governors, other professionals, parents/carers, and students work together to know the rules about keeping children safe. They understand the importance of following procedures and listening to each other, especially when there are concerns about safety.

The UTC works hard to reduce all the kinds of harm that children can suffer, including abuse, bullying, discrimination and avoidable injuries. If you have any concerns at all about the safety or welfare of a child, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Mr. Rob Harding, Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs. Delma Russell, Deputy Safeguarding Lead (Well-Being Manager)

If you would like to know more information regarding the safeguarding of young people in schools, you may find the following information useful.


Although the UTC teaches students e-safety throughout the curriculum, we think it is equally important for parents to be aware of the risks and what they can do to develop a culture of e-safety in the home.

If you have any concerns about your child’s safety online, there is always someone at the UTC who is available to talk to you. Simply contact your child’s coach or one of the Designated Leads or speak to any member of staff who will direct you to the right person.

The online world is a wonderful source of information and resources for your child, where she can find many opportunities to enrich their understanding. However, it also presents some risks if they don’t know how to keep themselves safe.

At the UTC we teach our students how to stay safe online. We work closely with Digital Awareness UK, which has trained all our students and a sizeable number of their parents in how a young person can safely use the internet and social media.

What is a Money Mule?

Being a ‘money mule’ is when you allow other people access to your bank account, and it can land you in prison.

How do I avoid it?

Do not allow anyone access to your bank account, it is for your use only. Decline any requests for money transfers unless you can be sure of the reason and where the money is from. Report any suspicious requests to Action Fraud online at or telephone 0300 123 2040.
