We at tutors are us believes that all children and young people have the right to grow up in a safe and caring environment. This includes the right to protection from all types of abuse. Those of us in a position of trust have to do everything possible to promote these rights.
To do this, certain protections need to be in place to protect children, as well as those who work with them. We take this seriously and understand our responsibility towards safeguarding all children who engage with the company, with the focus being on their safety and welfare.
We work closely with ofsted and other child focused charities to ensure our tuition is delivered safely.
All staff and tutors receive an enhanced dbs check and training in safeguarding and child protection before being allowed to represent tutors are us.

Importantly we aim ensure that each child feels safe and confident to report in the strictest confidence any situations where they feel unhappy or unsafe and in line with our safeguarding policy.
