Hello everyone, It is the first time that I post on here so I am a bit nervous! I am trying to set up a new exchange with a school in France, that have already been doing it for 28 years. My school/department have never done it before. We submitted our project to the head teacher last week and she is 'extremely concerned about the potential child protection risks. (...) There were also concerns about the number of our children who would not be in a position to host a child in return.' However, it is not a straight 'no', but I would like to know if there are any MFL teachers here who could give me a few tips/pieces of advice in order to reassure her and make the right decision (ie: How do you check that all families are safe? Do you do a DBS check on everyone? How do you introduce the families? etc) Any reply would be hugely appreciated as I really want to make it happen but just need a bit of help... Thank you!
