If your International School is serious about safeguarding and child protection, ask the question whether it is time you organized a bespoke school-safeguarding audit?
If you are in the early stages of developing your school’s safeguarding related policies and procedures, training, protective environment or culture, this could be a relevant and informative place to start. If however, you consider everything is effective and efficient, maybe an audit or review of your strategic and operational child protection practices is still warranted?
Is it time for you to conduct an internal audit, a peer review by a DCPO from another school, or alternatively an independent external review?
