Sophia's Commmitment to Safeguarding


Sophia Technologies Ltd. is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and other third parties to share this commitment.

Any concerns are passed through the designated safeguarding leaders at Sophia

Director of Education
Melissa McBride
Co Founder / CEO

We ensure that all tutors have been vetted against the highest standards of safer recruitment in education policy and receive appropriate guidance and support to undertake the effective safeguarding of children.

We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support children, families and Sophia tutors.

The safety and wellbeing of all children and young people is of paramount importance. Clients should expect when working with a reputable tuition company and/or professional private tutor, that they provide a safe and secure learning environment in which their children can flourish. We, therefore, have to ensure that this expectation becomes reality.

Safeguarding children and young people is everyone’s responsibility.
