The White House Guardianships (WHG) policies include the safeguarding policy which is mandatory for all staff to read and recommended for parents. This policy relates to all students under our care regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, religion or disability. All children and young people have the right to protection from any kind of abuse and the right to exist in a safe and friendly environment whilst in the care of WHG.
WHG is committed to the ongoing promise of safeguarding students. To ensure that all staff receive the most up to date information, this policy is reviewed and redistributed annually as standard. Should a significant change take place, the policy is immediately redistributed thereafter.
What is child safeguarding?
“The process of protecting children from abuse or neglect, preventing impairment of their health and development, and ensuring they are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care that enables children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully”
WHG is an AEGIS accredited guardianship organisation that cares for international students who need to appoint an Educational Guardian. WHG looks after students studying in boarding schools who may on occasions use homestays. Additionally, we organise homestay placements for long-term day students. Our students vary in age from 7 to 18 years old.
WHG aims to provide the highest level of care to students. Below you will find links to our policies which support our continual accreditation by AEGIS.
