Yoyogi International School recognises its responsibilities for child protection. As stated in our School Mission, “We provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment...” The following guidelines, which are supported by other guidelines in the Staff Handbook including, the Internet Safety Guidelines and Excursion Guidelines, ensure that we take the safety and security of our students and staff seriously.
It is important to ensure children feel safe and secure at school, and know they can talk to their teachers about any concerns they have and they will be listened to without judgment.
We do our utmost to safeguard all the students and staff of Yoyogi International School by:
● Ensuring we practice safe recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers working
● Raising awareness of child protection issues and equipping children with the skills needed to keep them safe.
● Developing and then implementing procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse.
● Establishing a safe environment in which children can learn and develop.
Within this policy are definitions of the different forms of child abuse, along with other terminology, to ensure all staff members are clear of what constitutes child abuse and the different signs of possible abuse. We will use this shared understanding, so that we are able to identify students who may need help or protection.
We foster a love of learning by encouraging children to be resilient, creative and collaborative. We guide children to be open-minded and develop integrity to become active members of the global society in the 21st century. We provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment where each child is supported individually and is inspired to exceed their own academic expectations.
