Every school has to meet our requirements in five key aspects before they can become a Cambridge school. One of these requirements is to have child protection policies in line with government requirements. We need to see evidence of this during the approval and re-approval process.
To support schools we have published some guidelines on what a robust approach to child protection may look like in a school setting. To implement a fully robust approach to child protection policies have to be supported by well-managed and resourced processes.
This example is adapted from the International Task Force on Child Protection Essential Questions and Expectations report, which is aligned with the values statements in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The ITFCP has joined forces with the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children to offer an education portal full of resources on how to prevent and respond to child abuse. We are now working with ECIS, the Educational Collaborative of International Schools, to offer online workshops about child protection. Find out more
