We take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously.
We fully investigate any safeguarding issue raised by a student, parent or tutor and act immediately when appropriate.
If you are a parent looking for a tutor for your child we strongly recommend you meet the tutor or speak on Skype before your child’s first lesson.
Please note that no personal details are kept on file other than names and email addresses. We do not keep home addresses or phone numbers so in the unlikely event of a data leak, tutors and clients cannot be located.
As the law stands at the moment a tutor is not legally obliged to have a DBS certificate in order to teach one – to – one or online. We do appreciate, however, that parents often prefer tutors to have a certificate and we do encourage them to apply for one if at all possible. It should be noted that a certificate can only by applied for by an organisation on behalf of an individual. This can make things complicated for some tutors – for example, retired teachers who wish tutor but who are no longer part of an organisation that can arrange a certificate for them – so we do not insist on their having one to join the site. Our advice to parents is to ask to see a tutor’s certificate. If one is not available, you are at liberty to approach another tutor.
If you have any concerns about safeguarding please contact us immediately.
