ISD is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. It is our moral and legal responsibility to safeguard and promote each child’s universal right to protection from violence, exploitation, neglect and abuse; whether physically, psychologically, emotionally or sexually. To this effect, we have built partnerships with external agencies to enhance our child protection practices. Our child protection policy and procedures have been developed with reference to the local regulatory framework and unique cultural context.
In addition, we have appointed a child protection officer to best promote and support the education and training of staff as it relates to child protection under German school law. We aim to ensure that all suspicions of abuse are promptly reported and appropriately responded to.
