Case Conference Group

  • The Case Conference Group advises individual members of staff on how to respond to complex, risky or vulnerable situations involving students.

    Contact the Student Welfare Manager or another member of the Case Conference Group to notify the group of a serious/traumatic incident relating to a student or to commission a Cause for Concern Group, which will nominate a lead person and advise on appropriate responses.

    The Case Conference Group will:

    • Monitor ongoing complex cases and identify further action, including, where appropriate, implementation of the Fitness to Study Policy
    • Review the response to serious or critical incidents and identify learning points

    The Group meets twice a semester, and may meet more frequently or virtually if necessary.
