Pastoral care is very important at North East Futures UTC. Students will be in a small Project Tutor team and they will be your first port of call to ensure your wellbeing.
At North East Futures UTC we pride ourselves on celebrating and promoting diversity. We also recognise however that in today’s world young people are faced with many pressures as they grow up and can often be influenced by strong feelings expressed by others. Our concern is that all our students feel safe and also express tolerance towards all cultures and religions even when personal views may be different.
The UTC promotes the use of technology to support learning. All students must sign up to our Acceptable Use Agreement and our Pastoral programme includes E-Safety to support students be safe online.
For advice on E-Safety visit Think U Know – a UTC-approved site dedicated to supporting families with e-safety
