Safeguarding Policy

The welfare of students under 18 is a major concern for our school, and we will do our best at all times to keep our students safe.

You can read our full Safeguarding Policy and Procedures here.

The Principal Safeguarding Lead for our school is the Academic Manager, Tasmin Smith.

You can contact her at or by calling our Reception: +44 (0) 1132 456476.

Supervision in the year-round school

Students are supervised during lessons and break times. However, they are free to leave the building in break times and before and after their lessons, where our staff cannot supervise them.

Students under 18 must arrive home to meet their host families by an agreed time in the evening (typically 9 pm). They must make contact with them if they cannot arrive home on time, and host families will always inform us if they don’t hear from the students by the time they should arrive home.

Supervision in Junior Summer School

Students attending the Junior Summer School will be supervised during lessons and organised free time activities. They may not be fully supervised during their free time; however, they must remain on the school premises, where a suitable number of trained staff will always be on duty. Students must observe all meeting and curfew times.

Attendance is checked seven times every day: in the morning, at the beginning of each lesson or activity, and in the evening. Students under 16 who arrive without a group leader will have a daily welfare meeting with the Welfare Officer or another designated member of staff.

Unless specifically requested otherwise by the parent/guardian, students will be allowed up to two hours of unsupervised free time during excursions. They will be shown a meeting point, and provided with a map and emergency contact number(s). Students must stay in groups of minimum three.


If you are ever concerned about your child, please call us immediately. We are happy to help all day, every day.
