What is safeguarding at ISP?

ISP’s Child Protection Policy and safeguarding guidelines apply to all faculty, staff, employees, volunteers, and students who represent the school and who interact with children or young people in both a direct and/or unsupervised capacity.

Safeguarding is inextricably linked to student wellbeing, and we would invite you to explore our Wellbeing page to learn more about ISP's committment to caring and connecting.



Safeguarding at ISP policies documented internally:

  • Child Protection
  • Intimate Care
  • Staff Conduct
  • Curriculum
  • Attendance
  • Behaviour Expectations
  • Safety and Security
  • Health and Safety
  • Safe Recruitment and Selection

What we do in practice:

  • Safer Recruitment Practices: Child Protection questions feature in interview questions and 10 year police checks from all countries of residence is required

  • Lockdown and fire drills 

  • Staff and secondary school students trained annually in Safeguarding and Child Protection

  • Risk Assessments

  • Protocols for Zoom sessions and interactions in place

  • Update of Safeguarding policies with input from secondary students

Our united and collaborative approach to wellbeing received commendations from the Council of International Schools (CIS), the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB) during the 2019 joint accreditation.
