One of the International Task Force on Child Protection (ITFCP) Expectations for schools: ‘A values statement on child rights, aligned with the responsibilities set out in the …(UNCRC), has been developed and formally adopted by the school’.

Such values statement, either separate or integrated within already existing Mission, Vision, Values, Principles & Practices or similar statements – will be a decision for individual organizations. Good practice would include:

(i) In line with ITFCP Essential Question 6: ‘Does the school communicate publicly its child protection policy/procedure?’, consider publicly communicating a statement online as well as within recruitment, admissions and other areas of relevant business.

(ii) Include the statement within your Child Protection Policy.
