The 3rd Quintile of school is over and we have so many more wonderful events and learning opportunities yet to occur before June. During the QSI Director’s meeting in Malta I mentioned that QSI, as an international organization, is working toward creating standards, curriculum and safeguards concerning child protection. In establishing these guidelines QSI is working with CEESA and AAIE to ensure every school community understands the best ways to ensure child safety. The CEESA Safeguarding and Child Protection Statement is:
Safeguarding and Child Protection is a priority for every CEESA School.
CEESA commits to supporting school environments that safeguard children through both prevention and intervention.
CEESA works in cooperation with international agencies to ensure standards associated with best practices are regularly reviewed, revised, and applied in all operations, activities, and events.
CEESA leaders honor and uphold child protection guidelines and procedures, in partnership with all stakeholders in their respective school communities.
All CEESA schools will:
Actively uphold the CEESA Safeguarding and Child Protection Statement.
Implement school-based Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies and Procedures that include regular onsite training.
Employ safe recruitment practices consistent with Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies.
Educate students and adults on Safeguarding and Child Protection.
QSIT has established a Child Protection Team that will set up protocols and respond to any reports. All local and international staff members have submitted background checks and training on Child Safeguarding and Protection is occurring within all sections of the school. QSI is establishing curriculum, which will be implemented next year, for all students according to their developmental levels. You will be hearing more about these initiatives in the future. We look forward to creating an ever safer environment for our students and everyone in our school community.
