CHOOSING AN EDUCATIONAL GUARDIAN
Educational Guardianship for your Child.
Children and young people who come alone to study in the UK from abroad are required to have an Educational Guardian, who will assume the responsibilities of a parent (in loco parentis), supervising the academic process through application to schools and ensuring everything is ready for your child to begin their course of study. The school will deal with the education guardian on day-to-day matters and your child can turn to St. George’s Guardians for help in any situation, as we provide constant emergency cover day and night. We are also able to help with any health, financial or travel needs, ensuring your child has a safe and enjoyable time whilst here in the UK. St. George’s Guardians can also offer translation & linguistics services (i.e. translating documents & booking medical appointments).
WHY ST. GEORGE’S GUARDIANS?
Being away from home can be an unnerving experience for both students and parents alike. At St. George’s Guardians we understand this and aim to provide a robust network of schools & support workers to ensure that your child adjusts as quickly as possible to their exciting new life in the UK; to gain the most from their experience, whether on a short or long placement.
We have a team of multi-lingual staff with a wealth of experience, working in education for over twenty years.
Working closely with experienced agents and schools we are able to support each child in a safe and secure environment where they can study and thrive. This gives students the opportunity to enjoy the experience of living in the UK, combined with the studies necessary to gain excellent results and hopefully a place in further (higher) education or at university.
Additionally, we provide constant welfare support from our experienced team throughout the student’s time in the UK and we deliver regular written reports to parents on the student’s progress at school. In addition, we are able to offer support on academic and pastoral matters, as well as student life and living in the UK.
We ensure that all our students are safe, emotionally secure and stimulated. Our student’s needs and wellbeing are integral to everything we do. It is our desire that all of our students form open, harmonious and trusting relationships that enable them to express their feelings and opinions. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. We work with all our partner schools, parents & agents to ensure that students wellbeing is paramount!!. All our staff are extensively checked & hold current DBS certificates.
