Special Cases Committee

Where student cases require additional input, extra perspectives or reach a higher level of urgency, the Connect Centre's Senior Counsellor can call activate the Special Cases Committee (SSC). This is especially important for ensuring the right people are updated in serious cases, and also that their collective experience and expertise are called upon in a timely and coordinated way. This committee consists of:

  • Both Connect Centre Counsellors
  • The Dean
  • The Head tutor
  • The Housemaster
  • The Managing Director
  • The Director of Education
  • The tutor of the student concerned is seconded onto the Committee as necessary.

All communications and activity remain strictly confidential within this group. This committee is also mobilised when the Student Death or serious Accident Protocol must be used.
