At Lexis we put the safety and security of students aged under 18 first.
Students aged 16 and 17 are enrolled on our English language courses for adults and do not have any special supervision. However, we do have additional and very important rules for them.
These special rules are explained at the first day induction and are in our Code of Conduct for Under 18s that the student must sign, and also our Parental Consent Form that both the parents and student must sign. The students will also have a meeting every week with the welfare officer.
Below are some of the ways in which we safeguard 16 and 17 year olds:
Contact with other age groups
Before, during and after lessons
If they are more than 30 min late without contacting their homestay, the homestay will contact the school and the school will try to locate the student. The parents/legal guardians will be contacted immediately.
Applies only to 16 and 17 year old students on Summer English for Adults
