Student Welfare & Safeguarding

Languages United is committed to providing a supportive and caring environment for all of its students, both adults and juniors.

The school understands that under-18s require special care to ensure their safety at all times throughout their stay with the school; that 16 and 17 year olds, who have greater independence, should be treated differently too and be given more freedom; and equally that some adult students may require additional support and advice.

Languages United has robust safeguarding policies and procedures in place to care for its students. This includes:

  • checking the suitability of staff and homestay providers to make sure they are suitable to work with children;
  • ensuring that staff and students understand what is acceptable behaviour and what is not allowed;
  • training staff to identify when a student might need support or guidance;
  • putting the students' safety first when running activities, and making sure they are adequately supervised;
  • giving students the information they need to stay safe;
  • making sure that students know who to speak to if there is a problem.
