- Providing Tuition for children.
- Providing after school and holiday care.
IllumEducation recognizes its responsibilities for the safeguarding of all children and young people of ages 8 to 18 (regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or ability).
We prevent the physical, sexual and emotional abuse of children and respond to concerns about the well being of children and young people and report any child abuse disclosed, discovered or suspected. It is IllumEducation’s duty as a provider to report to Social Care Services any unexplained injury whether physical, emotional or sexual.
Our staff members are provided with appropriate training, support and supervision to promote the safeguarding of children.
IllumEducation’s aim is to provide all the children in its care with a safe, comfortable environment where they can learn and play. Positive behavior is encouraged. Unwanted behavior will be dealt with verbally or by removing the child from the situation. Children will be encouraged to sort out their problem themselves and to talk about their feelings.
