Safeguarding Young Learners

Our individual teaching ethos works for you

At Living Learning English, our low teacher to student ratio ensures that each individual is cared for and safeguarded to the highest standards.  

Children under 13 are always supervised at all times. Curfews for older students are agreed in advance with parents, LLE head office and the teacher, ensuring each individual child is given a suitable level of responsibility.

Placements are monitored by our experienced course managers, who have received the highest level of safeguarding training in the UK - The same level as state schoolteachers.

All teachers have parental controls on their internet and Wi-Fi, and your child's internet use is monitored. LLE works in partnership with parents to determine the level of each child’s mobile phone and internet use. 

Every member of your teacher’s family aged 16 years plus hold an enhanced DBS (police check) carried out by LLE, and have undergone thorough pre-employment checks to ensure they are suitable to work with children.

Living Learning English is committed to promoting positive mental well-being for our students, and is focused on the steps we can take to notice and address problems students may be facing at an early stage, and before becoming larger issues.

LLE is committed to the safeguarding of every child and vulnerable adult in their care. Our robust policies, high level of training, professional standards, and accreditations means we are at the forefront of safeguarding international students in the UK. Our teachers and host families welcome ALL children by providing a nurturing, non-judgemental and child-focused environment where children can live and learn English safely with their mental well-being and welfare, being our number one priority.

Designated Safeguarding Lead, Emma Langton

 

We take safeguarding very seriously

Living Learning English has developed policies and procedures to ensure all our pupils are safe and confident whilst in our care.

We believe that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children, their families and carers, has a role to play - that's why everyone in our organisation has completed safeguarding training.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children by:

  • The provision of a safe environment in which children and young people can learn.
  • Working closely with schools, parents and our teachers to ensure ongoing communication between caretakers.
  • Acting on concerns about a child’s welfare immediately and responsively.
  • Fulfilling our legal responsibilities to identify children who may need early help or who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, harm.

Safeguarding young and vulnerable students is our priority simply because it is our responsibility as educators to ensure that the wellbeing of these individuals is at the forefront of what we do.
