College Policies & Procedures

Getting Support in College

Respectful Relationship Officers

Respectful Relationship Officers are senior staff members. Their role is to provide support, guidance, and information to anyone in College who is concerned about disrespectful behaviour including discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, and sexual assault.

Appointed staff members include Ian Smith (Vice Principal), Bonnie Dixon (Director of Operations), Daniel Tyler (Director of Education), Hannah Atwell (Director of Advancement), Gary De Souza (Education Manager) and Rev Dr Gareth Clayton (Chaplain).

These Officers can provide confidential information and support regarding College policies and procedures. They may be instructed by the Principal to investigate any informal or formal complaints as an alternative to appointing an external investigator.

Pastoral Care Leaders

Pastoral Care Leaders (PCLs) are fellow students (second or third year) who provide peer support and run student-led wellbeing initiatives in College designed to bring students together. Reach out to Pastoral Care Leaders for:

  • Their latest wellbeing initiatives
  • Ad-hoc and emotional support for situations in life and College
  • Guidance for where to go/who to reach out to
  • As “someone to talk to”, ideas for wellbeing, and more!


The College offers confidential counselling sessions through our professionally trained Dean of Student Wellbeing as well as guidance and support for accessing external services.

Visit our Wellbeing at St Andrew’s page further information about our holistic approach to Student Wellbeing.

The College seeks to ensure that all College members are aware of these policies.
