MANASSAS-PERSONAL-INJURY-STATUTE-OF-LIMITATIONS-150x150

In International School settings this raises a significant issue for senior leadership within strategic safeguarding and child protection team discussions.

This knowledge has potential relevance when it comes to responding to and supporting staff or students – current and past.
