Safeguarding Policy

Policy Statement

At Anglolang we believe that it is always unacceptable for a child or young person to experience abuse of any kind and we recognises our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of children and young people. We take all reasonable steps to protect children and young people from harm, discrimination or degrading treatment and to maintain their rights.

Our policy is directed at all adults working for Anglolang who come into contact with students under 18. It is to safeguard all our students aged under 18 who come in groups or as unaccompanied 16-17 year olds.

We acknowledge:

The welfare of the child / young person is paramount and all children, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation, or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse.

We will:

  • Safeguard (look after) the under 18s in our care.
  • Provide child protection for the children and young people who receive our services (protect them from direct harm).
  • Provide staff with guidance on what they should do if they suspect a child or young person may be experiencing or be at risk of, harm. This policy applies to all staff, including management and administrative staff, teachers, homestay hosts, group leaders, students and anyone working on behalf of Anglolang.

Safeguarding children and young people will be achieved by:

  • Listening to and respecting them.
  • Adopting child protection guidelines through procedures and a code of conduct for staff.
  • Recruiting staff safely, ensuring all necessary checks are made.
  • Sharing information about child protection and good practice with children, parents, agents, group leaders and staff.
  • Sharing information about concerns with agencies who need to know, and involving parents, group leaders, agents and children appropriately
    Providing effective management for staff through supervision, support and training.
