Child Protection

Keeping Kids Safe

“Schools have a duty of care to protect children and prevent them from harm, and act with a sense of urgency if a child is at risk of harm.”
International Task Force on Child Protection, School Evaluation Committee

Every AISA member school is committed to keeping children safe – online and on campus – by providing a learning environment that is nurturing, and fosters the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of its students.

AISA’s is committed to supporting schools to build and maintain a proactive environment that protects children by preventing child abuse before it occurs and ensuring its earliest possible detection, intervention and reporting. AISA continues to provide leadership to the international school community by developing resources and providing members with access to world-class professional development that keep our member schools up to date with evidence-based best practice in child protection programming.
