OUR COMMITMENT TO CHILD SAFETY
Australian International School (AIS) is committed to child safety. We want children to be safe, happy and learning. We support and respect all children, as well as our staff and volunteers.
We have zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently with our policies and procedures. We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow.
AIS is committed to preventing child abuse and identifying risks early, and removing and reducing these risks. We are committed to training and educating our staff and volunteers regularly on child abuse risks.
As an international school of 40 nationalities, we seek to create and foster an improved sense of community by understanding, respecting and celebrating our varied beliefs, nationalities, and cultures. This in turn means we support and respect all children, as well as our staff and volunteers.
We have specific policies, procedures and training in place, including a code of conduct that support our leadership team, staff and volunteers to achieve these commitments. These policies are available from the School and are included in the staff policies and procedures manual. A summary of the school policies is included in AIS’s Parent Handbook.
