At Capital School of English we aim to ensure all our students study and live in a safe and inclusive environment. Being away from home can bring many challenges and at Capital School of English we have a number of trained staff who are on hand 24hrs/day to help and assist students with any problems or concerns they may have during their stay. Students are often away from their families for the first time and we aim to provide our students with the very best care in and out of school.
ID Cards - Staff & Students
To maintain a safe and secure learning environment for our students, all members of staff wear ID cards to identify themselves. In addition all students are issued with their own ID cards. These cards are given to their teacher at the beginning of any class and are used to monitor a student’s attendance throughout their stay. On the reverse of all cards are the contact details for the school.
Each student receives individual ID card which includes the school contact details as well as our 24-hour emergency contact telephone number. Student ID cards must be handed to their teacher before class and also to the Academic Office when they are on site.
Part of our commitment to ensuring student safety is paying special attention to students under the age of 18. Students under 18 are, by law, classified as children and therefore we are required to monitor them throughout their time with us.
Under 18 students are issued with orange ID cards so members of staff are aware of their age and also if they do not attend class. In addition we have a dedicated Under 18 Welfare Officer who meets weekly with all Under 18 students to make sure they are happy with all elements of their stay.
Keeping students safe, everyone is responsible for safe guarding
Safeguarding : Every member of staff is here to help make any student’s experience as memorable as it can be. All members of the Capital School of English team have undergone Safeguard training to ensure they are aware of potential issues and how to deal with them in an effective way.
Fire & First Aid : All members of staff are trained to deal with situations involving fires. In addition, a number of our staff have a formal first aid certification.
