We provide regular safeguarding training to tutors and lessons will take place in a state of the art teaching environment that prioritises the well being of all our pupils.

Lesson Cancellation - Student Cancels
Unfortunately if your child misses a lesson, it cannot be re-scheduled due to the group structure of the lessons.
Lesson Cancellation - Education Place cancels
There are occasions when we have to cancel lessons due to teacher absence or other unforeseen circumstances. In this instance, the following steps will occur:
- We will try to cover the lesson with an appropriately trained teacher in the required subject area.
- If cover is not available, this session will be banked
- The group session will be rescheduled as soon as possible.
At the Education Place we aim for maximum consistency of teachers, in the best interests of the learner. However, there are occasions, due to illness, family events, or for other reasons that a cover teacher will deliver your lesson. We have processes in place to ensure that continuity is achieved, with teachers recording the content of lessons following every session delivered at The Education Place. We aim for as little disruption to lessons as possible, but, as stated above, this can at times be unavoidable.
We take safeguarding very seriously and all teachers are DBS checked and cleared. We also operate a ‘Safer Recruitment Policy” to ensure we thoroughly vet all staff that work at The Education Place. Our premises and teaching spaces have been designed with safeguarding at the forefront – bright open learning spaces and glazed doors etc. We have an open house policy and parents are welcome to use our new waiting room to wait for their child.

We require a 4 lesson notice if you decide to discontinue lessons.
- Please notify us if you decide to discontinue with lessons
- We will then inform you of when your final lesson will take place

- The number of lessons delivered & the amount paid
Following the above process, we will request or make payment to you, dependent whether there is a credit or debit on the account.
