Safeguarding and Child Protection
ISS schools fully recognize their responsibilities regarding child protection, and the welfare of all students is of paramount importance to our community. We aim to create a safe, secure and supportive learning environment for all members of the community. We believe that all students have a right to be protected from neglect and physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
ISS works within the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) guidelines and Child Protective Services (CPS) provides statutory intervention and supportive services to protect and ensure the well-being of children and young persons in our community.
We know that all learners need a secure and supportive environment in which to learn. At ISS, we believe that every child and young person, regardless of age:
- Has at all times and in all situations the right to feel safe and included, and be protected from all forms of abuse, neglect, or harassment;
- Should be treated fairly with dignity and respect;
- Should be taught to understand their rights as an ISS student and as a global citizen;
- Adult decisions affecting children should be made in the best interest of the child.
ISS is committed to our safeguarding processes in order to prevent the risk of harm to children’s health or development. ISS expects all individuals and groups associated with our school community to act with integrity and to take responsibility for keeping students safe and included. Whether you are a staff member, a coach, contractor, guest, parent or visitor, we expect you to support our students and act with their well-being in mind at all times.
