Here at ISB we believe that in order to be able to perform and to enhance their potential, children need first of all to be in an environment that makes them feel safe. For this reason, all the staff who interacts with the students is being trained each year on Child Protection. On top of this, we have a Child Protection team (Mrs. Kerry Harris- designated Child Protection Officer and Miss Alina Constantin- SENCo) who's role is to identify and manage possible situation that would threaten a student's safety, inside or outside the school.
Last week, our Child Protection Team attended an advance Child Safeguarding Course run by Robin Watts, Child Protection Expert from UK. This was a great opportunity to share experiences with other professionals from other International Schools in Bucharest but most importantly, to get updated information in terms of procedures and policies that would best serve the well-being of the students. The course has also provided very valuable practical ideas of intervention in different situations.
