TANDEM Madrid requires parents or guardians to complete this Welfare Form for the safety of all our students under 18. It is very important that we know about everything that might affect the health of our students, as well as other informations to be considered in the event of a problem.
Please submit this form just after you’ve completed the booking (either via Website or email), so we can organize any dieultimatary requirements or anything else which may have an effect on the student’s well-being at our school, such as previous illnesses or injuries.
At TANDEM MADRID we work to achieve the complete customer satisfaction. However, unforeseen problems might happen, and we are committed to follow up all concerns from our students to solve any eventual problems the best we can.
If you have a complaint either with the school in general or with any service we provide, please let us know. We’ll always treat your complaints seriously.
Steps to submit a complaint to TANDEM Madrid:
Go to reception or the marketing Coordinator, Mrs. Ana Llovet and explain your complaint.
We will do our best to answer you quickly and we may be able to solve your issue immediately. If it is not possible, we will normally arrange a time and a place on the same day to discuss the problem further and find a solution with you.
We could attend you in several languages, but If your Spanish or English level is not high, try to get help from someone who can help you with the translation.
Please give us time to analyze all details involving your complaint. It usually takes 24 hours or less.

TANDEM Madrid accepts students within the age range specified in our brochure and other promotional materials. The student should have reached the required age by the beginning of the course.
Child Safeguarding is very important to TANDEM Madrid and acceptation of the TANDEM’S Child Safeguarding policy is required for all staff. All staff will be informed of students who do not fall within the age range and they will be placed in accommodation and classrooms which are suitable for their age range, if necessary. Students who are within the age range will be consulted regarding their stay at our schools.
All age sensitive activities will be monitored and we will provide an alternative when they’re considered unsuitable for their ages.
A disclaimer and an email will be sent to third party providers or to the legal guardian of direct students for them to sign and send back prior to the arrival of the student, stating that TANDEM Madrid reserves the right to accept students outside its published age range.
Students under the age of 12 will be supervised either by the student’s group leader or by an TANDEM Madrid member of staff during free time while on excursions.
Any students over 17 years of age are accepted on the basis that they adhere to all the rules and policies of the school and its providers. The student will be treated as if he or she is under 18.
Students must declare any eventual disabilities and special educational needs TANDEM Madrid during their application.
This declaration will allow the school to make provision for the student in when reasonably possible and practicable.
Declaration during the application stage will give the school time to make any adjustments that are reasonable and necessary, or to propose alternative arrangements if adjustments cannot be made.
If a disability or special need is not declared at the time of application but is identified after arrival at school, this could result in the school not being able to provide the services for the student as expected, agreed or contracted. In this case the school would make arrangements for the student to be transferred to another school or returned home. This could result in additional costs for student concerned.
