Student safety and welfare is a top priority for us. We want to ensure that each student is happy, healthy and safe.
Oxford Spires has a designated Welfare Officer at each location who strives to ensure that each student’s stay is an enjoyable one. There is a 24-hour emergency mobile number which is given to students and is made available to students’ families in case of emergencies.
Detailed and stringent health and safety checks take place at all of our locations and risk assessments are undertaken for every activity and excursion.
Students are supervised at a ratio of 1:15 during lessons and at school, and 1:20 on activities and excursions. Students are accompanied by staff when walking to and from the residence, and are not allowed to leave the school or residence without a member of staff.
Homestay students travel to and from school unaccompanied.
All our staff are qualified to deliver specific aspects of our programmes and undergo staff training and orientation days to ensure all health and safety elements are covered.
At our residential accommodation options, adult members of staff also live in the residence.
