Keeping Your Child Safe at the Maths Society

At the Maths Society, your child's safety and well-being are our top priorities. We are committed to creating a positive and secure environment for all our students.


What does this mean?


Safeguarding means protecting your child from harm, including:

  • Physical or emotional abuse

  • Neglect

  • Exploitation


We work hard to ensure your child:

  • Feels safe and supported

  • Can develop and learn to their full potential

  • Has a happy and healthy experience at the Maths Society


Working Together


Whenever possible, we will work with you to address any concerns we may have about your child's welfare. This open communication helps us achieve the best outcome for your child.

However, in some urgent situations, we may need to take action to safeguard your child immediately. This might involve contacting social services or the police.


How We Safeguard Your Child


The Maths Society follows strict guidelines to keep your child safe. This includes:

  • Staying up-to-date on the latest safeguarding laws and best practices.

  • Working closely with local authorities to ensure all safeguarding procedures are followed.

  • Providing clear safeguarding policies and procedures for all staff and volunteers.

All adults who work at the Maths Society have been subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS), which means TMS has checked to ensure that any adult, working at the Maths Society in any capacity, is an appropriate person to work with children and young people.

The Maths Society safeguarding policy is reviewed and updated annually.

Pupils are usually with us for a few hours, during this time, we focus on learning. We do not encourage the use of social media or indeed mobile phones, unless for emergency.
