  1. Has anyone had any safeguarding training and how are you keeping this up to date?
    Obviously as tutors, we go into houses and see the children on a regular basis. I therefore thought this was an appropriate post - if not just to raise awareness! [​IMG]

  2. Also, to link in with the above, do any of you have contact with the child's school?
  3. I'm in contact with one of the schools, as I tutor 4 of their children. I'm safeguarding trained, but I don't think it's necessary.

    The parents have asked for, and been graciously given, medium term plans so that I can teach ahead or reinforce.
    Safeguarding - training through school. Keep doors open, sit opposite child where possible, no personal details, no photos. As a man I would be more concerned, and if it's a problem, talk to the parents - can they keep within earshot? You'd be wise to take whatever precautions possible to protect yourself.
