Student Support Services

Here you will find people to help and advise you

Student Support Services include:

  • Student Support Team
  • Attendance Officer
  • Keystage 3/4 Co-ordinator
  • Work Experience Co-ordinator
  • Careers Co-ordinator
  • First Aid room

Support may be offered on a daily, weekly, short or long term basis. We try to respond appropriately whatever the need. In doing so, we also work with a larger range of services for young people e.g. Connexions, Youth Services, Social Services, Mental Health Services, Drug and Alcohol Abuse Services, Eating Disorders and other specialist support networks.

Students with Special Educational Needs  have a dedicated classroom to work during their non-curriculum time. Specialist counselling, EWO, Social Services and the DSL are available through our integrated services team. The College operates a policy of inclusion in mainstream curriculum, but individual needs are met through Individual Education Plans.

Tic Tac

Tic Tac provides on-site CONFIDENTIAL help and advice for all students at Callington Community College. They have a dedicated room in the College along D corridor and are open every day at Second Break. Students may drop in for help, or email Tic Tac directly for help and advice, which will still be confidential at 

The team is made up of three doctors and an advanced nurse practitioner (in training) from Tamar Valley Health along with Cheryl, the on-site coordinator, who will be able to help and advise students when they come in should they want to talk to someone about a worry or concern.

Tic Tac are not part of the College but completely independent and are therefore able to offer any student from the College a completely confidential service. However, if someone may be a victim of severe physical or emotional abuse it may not be possible to maintain confidentiality

As an agreement of our work within the College we may have to report serious concerns to the College Designated Safeguarding Lead.  However, every attempt will be made to maintain anonymity in the first instance.

COVID - our dedicated space is routinely cleaned and sanitised, and all health professionals will wear full PPE during consultations.
