Supervision

SUPERVISION FOR 16 & 17 YEAR OLD STUDENTS ON ADULT COURSES

THIS SECTION APPLIES ONLY TO UNDER 18s ENROLLED ON ADULT COURSES

I understand that my son/daughter will come into regular contact with other students over the age of 18,

in class and during the leisure programme.
I understand that he/she is responsible for buying their own lunch during the week.

I understand that there are certain British laws (e.g. related to smoking and drinking alcohol) that apply to people aged under 18. As a consequence, there may be some leisure activities which my son/daughter cannot take part in because of their age.

When the morning or afternoon lessons are finished, students can either stay at school or they can go home to their homestays. It is also a time that they could use to visit the centre of Paignton or Torquay or go shopping or spend free time on the beach. Students will be unsupervised at this time before they return to their homestay for dinner. The school will ask every day what plans these students have for their free time so that we know where they are.

Declaration

Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes and activities and to be in their accommodation at the stated times. If you wish your child to be absent from the course at any time, please contact the Devon School of English directly so that suitable arrangements can be made.

I hereby confirm all the permissions I have given above.

I hereby confirm that I have understood this document and confirm all the permissions I have given above.

I understand that I must inform the School or group leader as soon as possible of any change in the medical situation of my child before the date of travel.
