Statement of Safeguarding and Child Protection
Our School fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children from harm and to support and promote the welfare of all children who are registered students at our School.
The elements of our policy are early help, prevention, protection and support.
The purpose of ICS Côte d'Azur's safeguarding policy is to ensure every student who is registered at our School is safe and protected from harm. This means we will always work to:
Identify emerging problems and provide effective early help;
Protect children and young people at our school from maltreatment;
Prevent impairment of our children’s and young people’s health or development;
Ensure that children and young people at our school grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
Enable children and young people at our school to have the best outcomes.
All staff undertake appropriate child protection training at induction that is updated regularly (at least once per year);
Designated Safeguarding Roles and other key staff will undertake more in-depth training as appropriate. This will include designated lead training at appropriate intervals, as and when required (at least annually).
Appropriate filters and monitoring systems are in place to safeguard children from potentially harmful and inappropriate online materials. Care will be taken not to “Over block” online access which could lead to unreasonable restrictions and a missed opportunity to teach children about online safety.
During the enrolment/re-enrolment process, you are given a contract to sign with further information about our data-protection policy and photo/video authorisation policy.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) for child protection is Anne Henderson (Head of Early Years)
The deputy designated lead person: is Amanda Scott (Head of School)
