I am strongly committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. I have been in possession of an up-to-date full DBS (formerly CRB) disclosure since I began teacher-training in 1999 and I have attended regular training on child protection throughout my career; it may also reassure you to know that my husband (the only other member of our household) also holds a full DBS disclosure. These can be examined on request.
It is of supreme importance to me that children feel happy and safe in my company. I consider carefully how students are welcomed into my home and how they are escorted to and from and seated in the room. I will be guided by you as to whether your child is old enough to arrive and/or leave on their own or needs to be delivered and picked up; I never allow a very young child to leave unescorted or to be collected by someone unfamiliar to them.
If you and/or your child would prefer it, you may be present while tutoring takes place. If the tutoring is online, you can again be present during the session or indeed view a recording of it later; just let me know if you would like the sessions to be recorded.
Data Protection and Privacy
Any data that I hold on you such as your contact details, including email addresses and telephone numbers) is password protected and will be destroyed on request. I will not share your data with anyone else except at your request (for example, if you'd like me to put you in touch with another tutor).
