The welfare of all our students here at NSETC is of paramount importance to us and we take every reasonable step to ensure they are safe.
Student support is essential to a successful learning experience and NSETC ensure all students have access to the best possible guidance and support network.
Samantha Hiney is the Attendance and Welfare Officer and available every day of the school term. Along with Samantha NSETC aim to provide every student with as much support as possible in a confidential and non-judgemental way. Samantha is able to provide support and advice in areas such as attendance, housing, travel to and from school, academic concerns, friendships and relationships, health and well being or any other worries or questions a student feels they may have.
No concern is too small and will always be listened to.
Samantha is currently located in the main office and can meet with students in the privacy of the school interview room or in the communal areas located around the school site. What ever is best for the student Samantha will be guided by their needs.
Personal tutors play a key role in not only challenging academic progress, but also supporting the pastoral care for a student. At NSETC every student has a dedicated personal tutor who is on hand to provide support, advice and guidance throughout their time with us.
All staff have completed safeguarding training and the designated safeguarding lead teacher is Mr George, Principal.

We have dedicated first-aiders and a health care assistant is available for students to meet or to be in attendance where necessary.
Health and Wellbeing
The health and wellbeing of students at NSETC is addressed through the curriculum, from specific topics such as healthy eating, anti-bullying and e-safety, through to the whole ethos of NSETC itself of developing assertive and confident young people.
