Selby College asks: Why do you need to wear your College ID when in and around the campus?
This SnapShot question prompted a massive 1117 responses from students and it is very encouraging to see so many of you recognise the safety and security issues related to the wearing of College ID.
The choice of answers to the survey included:
- It is part of the College Safeguarding Policy
- So staff and students can identify other students, staff, Governors and visitors on site
- It is your ID to access classes, LRC and exams
All of the above responses were correct, which is why the College is so rigorous in enforcing the wearing of lanyards and ID across College
The College is required to be able to identify all persons on the campus. As a result, students, Governors and staff are issued with a photo ID card and lanyard. You will have received your ID badge and lanyard as part of the enrolment process, and the requirements to wear your ID were identified during induction. Further information on lanyards and ID's is in the student handbook, the student code of conduct and on Moodle.
YOU MUST WEAR THIS AT ALL TIMES* when you are on the College campus.
Your ID should be clearly visible, and presented when requested by a member of staff.
You will not be able to access any exams or College services (e.g. LRC, Refectory, Shop, Student Services, finance, etc…) if you are not wearing your ID.
*Exceptions can be made for health and safety reasons e.g. in workshops, practical sports lessons.
Please note: - any student not wearing their ID card will be told twice to wear one. If on the third occasion a student is caught without one, they will be subject to disciplinary action. You are required to report to student services immediately if you do not have your ID card with you in College, a temporary pass will be issued.
Lost or damaged ID cards must be replaced (through the LRC) and you will be expected to pay the replacement cost for these, though the first set is given to you free of charge.
Please do not deface or deliberately damage your College ID card as replacements for these are charged at a flat rate of £10.00.
Lanyards are colour coded for ease of reference
Your ID lasts for the duration of your course and must be handed in when you leave.
