Roles and Responsibilities

While the child is in school, the school is expected:

• To assume overall responsibility for the welfare of the student during their period of tenure at the school.
• To provide a suitable academic programme to meet the needs of the individual which will prepare them as best as possible for higher education.
• To provide suitable guidelines for students to follow which will enable them to settle into school life and obtain maximum benefit from their time there.
• To exercise a fair and consistent policy for all students regarding academic, moral and social standards expected of them.
• To communicate efficiently and effectively at all times with students, their parents and guardians.

As Guardians, OPDS assumes the following responsibilities:

• Maintenance of good records including up-to-date information on every student.
• Assisting with arrangements and support during their time in the UK.
• Representing the student fairly when required to do so. Note that this does NOT necessarily mean taking the student's side.
• To deliver everything we promise, to the highest standards possible thereby obtaining complete confidence from the students and their parents but not to promise anything we cannot deliver.



OPDS is a wholly accredited member of Aegis, the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students.  As such, we offer the highest levels of care including well documented procedures and detailed record keeping.
