After Aegis inspection
Who takes the guardianship responsibility for my son/daughter?
Whether in school or staying with a host family, Ten Garden Guardians’ Director, Kiki Zeng, remains the legal guardian of our international students whilst he/she is in the UK. She is assisted by her team of Office Administrators and qualified Coordinators. During term time, the school has responsibility for day-to-day care, as well as for the academic and social development of your child. Families hosting international students take over responsibility for day-to-day care whilst your child is staying with them at times when the school is closed.
How do you choose your Host Families?
Host Families come to us either by recommendation or by applying to become a host family through their own application. Prospective families are required to give details of the family members, their work, their interests, their pets and other information to determine their suitability for hosting foreign students. We then arrange a home visit to meet the family and inspect the facilities available to the student, especially the bedroom and bathroom in the host student accommodation. The visit also helps us to establish if the family is caring and warm, which is extremely important for the welfare of your child. We make detailed notes which enable us to match your child to a suitable family. All of our families are police checked (using the DBS -Disclosure and Barring Service) and provide references.
What happens in an emergency?
You and your child are given the Ten Garden 24-hour emergency contact details when they first arrive in the UK. The school is also informed of our contact details. In most cases, the situation can be resolved by one or more telephone calls, however, in the case of a suspension or a medical emergency we will liaise with you and with the school until the matter is resolved.
What happens if my child falls ill?
Your child will be registered with his or her School’s local National Health Service Doctor who will attend to your child should they fall ill. This is provided free of charge even if they are admitted to hospital. In the event of serious illness or injuries, we will be in contact with you and keep you informed of your child’s progress at all times. All schools also have an in-house nurse and medical centre to care for your child’s needs on a day to day basis.
Who monitors my child’s academic progress?
Schools provide regular written reports on their students’ academic progress. Typically, you will receive three written academic reports a year, one at the end of each term. Your child will also be assessed with grade marks for effort and achievement at regular intervals throughout each term. In addition, there will be an annual parent-teacher meeting which we will attend on your behalf if requested. We will send you a full written report of this meeting.
