Child Protection at KIS

At KIS we recognize it is our duty to ensure that arrangements are in place for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, to work together with other organizations and partners in order to achieve this and to protect and keep students safe whilst in our care. We fully acknowledge our responsibilities for child protection and recognize that through our day to day contact with students that school staff are well placed to identify signs of risk and harm. We recognize that for students, high self-esteem, confidence, risk awareness and good lines of communication help to reduce risks. We recognize that for some students’ school may be the only stable, secure and consistent environment in their lives. All members of the KIS community will be made aware of the role and responsibilities of the school with regards to safeguarding and promoting student welfare, and of the existence of the school’s Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy and related documentation in Parent and Staff handbooks, in the KIS policy manual, via the school website and KIS blogs and through initial hiring, orientation and admissions procedures.
