Safeguarding: Keeping children safe

We understand that our most important duty is to keep every student safe, and our Safeguarding policy and procedures ensure that we give the best care we can to all students attending our school.

We carefully plan all activities and assess risks appropriately to make our Junior Summer School programme as safe as possible. All our staff are trained, and there is a dedicated Welfare Officer at both summer schools, who is available for students should they need any help or support.

We know that it is sometimes worrying for parents to send their children to a summer school abroad – our team is available 24/7 to address any concerns and deal with problems immediately.
