Keeping Our Students Safe in an Online Learning Environment
Students come first in all that we do and so safeguarding and child protection are always a central focus at GeoVLE. In light of the current global health crisis, we have recently had a large increase in attendance at GeoScool. Many students are new to this online learning environment, the ways in which our staff and students interact may be different, but we are committed to providing a safe environment for each of our students, following the Tutors Association framework.
All staff have been trained on our comprehensive Safeguarding Policy, and regularly revisit the Tutors Association Code of Conduct – which makes clear our professional standards.
Teachers use approved online learning platforms when working with their students.
Given the online format, tutors are reminded that they are entering a student’s personal sphere and so are expected to be aware of their dress, behaviour and their own location, maintaining professionalism at all times.
