English in Margate (EiM) takes the welfare and health and safety of junior students (that is, children under the age of 18) and of the hosts and the staff who work with them very seriously. Everyone who comes into contact with children and vulnerable adults has a duty of care for their welfare — to protect them and keep them safe at all times.
In this section you can find useful information regarding welfare and health and safety, as well as the consent forms students aged 16 or 17 will require in order for us to accept them on one of our courses.
If a student, host, group leader or member of EiM staff has any concern about the welfare of a student they should report it to a Designated Safeguarding Person straight away. For more information you can read the English in Margate Safeguarding Policy
