All children have the right to feel safe and valued. As a teacher of secondary age pupils in both school situations and my own studio, it is my responsibility to make certain that they do.
I keep my Safeguarding Course Level 1 updated on a regular basis.
In my studio, I discuss with parents what will make them and their child feel most at ease. Parents are welcome to sit in my comfortable living room while they wait for their child's lesson to finish.
