As parent’s ourselves, both Tim and Julie understand how important the safety and care of your family are. Therefore, we take this very seriously, and we make sure that we have the necessary safety checks in place.

Safety checks for Frogs Hole Farm:

  • Tim and myself have had done CRB Police checks.
  • We make sure that any cats are kept out of the student’s rooms.
  • We check that the students like cats if not, we can keep them away from your child.
  • We will also ensure that before your child/children’s arrival that we have corresponded by email, Skype or phone, and that Rye School of English has your home phone number, emergency numbers and email addresses.
  • RSE will take the mobile phone numbers of your daughter/son as soon as they arrive. This is to ensure that we can always contact them.
  • We also give your sons/daughters our full address, house phone number and mobile numbers.
  • For under 18’s we never leave them in the house on their own. There will always be a sensible adult with them. For older students we will leave our mobile numbers for any emergencies. We also tutor the students so that they can use the 999 British emergency number.
  • We have two smoke alarms and these are regularly checked.
  • We have three doors in the house. If the doors are locked, there are always keys kept in the doors, for a quick exit.
  • We have a home fire escape plan that includes two exits, (both door and window) from each room. Each student is shown this on arrival.
  • We do not have any natural gas in the house.
  • Our boilers, Aga (cooker) have a service check once a year by a professional company.
  • On arrival I show all students how to use the kettle, toaster and other home appliances.
  • For minor students I do their laundry myself.
  • I ensure that I am always with all students when they are using the swimming pool. I am a strong swimmer and I have my bronze and silver Life Guard certificate.

Health of your child/children:

  • I have a First Aid box, which contains equipment for minor injuries.
  • My local surgery is happy to see students with more major injuries and illnesses.
  • We will call a doctor if we are, in any way, concerned about the health of your sons/daughters. Medication will only be administered to your sons/daughters after they have bought the medication on advice of the pharmacist, or doctor.
  • It is important that all medical problems are entered on the student's enrolment forms.
  • For Chinese students we will have both a traditional and Chinese medical professionals available.

Food and diet:

  • Frogs Hole Farm will provide bed, breakfast, lunch and an evening meal 7 days per week.
  • I enjoy cooking, so the meals I prepare are fresh and delicious.
  • We will try very hard to cater for the different dietary needs of the students.
  • For Chinese students I will source foods from Chinese food stores.
  • Please can parents and adults ensure that any dietary needs are entered on the student enrolment form. It is imperative that any religious, or peanut allergies are registered.

Transport:

  • When transporting students we will always ensure that they are wearing their safety belts.
  • We ensure that the students know that they cannot go out on their own without a responsible adult with them.

Smoking and drinking:

  • The students must be over the age of 18 to smoke, drink or buy alcohol. This is the British Law.
  • We cannot accommodate any students that are smokers.

Responsibility of the students:

  • Students will be informed, from the start of the course, that they must respect the home, family and simple house rules.
  • Students will be informed, from the start of the course, that they must never go off on their own without a responsible adult with them.
  • Students must ensure that they keep, at all times, the contact telephone, (landline and mobile numbers) and email address of Rye School of English so, that if they should get lost, or have an emergency, they will be able to contact us.

We hope that this information has reassured you that we will take great care for your sons and daughters.

If you require further information on anything, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
Julie and Tim Wren
