At Oaks International School, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding, irrespective of their position within the school. The safety and wellbeing of pupils at Oaks International School is our number one priority; our aim is to ensure that all children and young people are free to learn in an environment where they are safe from harm, nuisance or abuse.
Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
Safeguarding encompasses child protection, health care plans, health and safety, site security, safety on school trips, mental health, safety online, anti-bullying and so much more.
The school has a dedicated team of staff working to promote safeguarding and child protection. The school takes the responsibility to remedy any weaknesses in the school’s safeguarding arrangements that are brought to its attention, as well as ensuring that policies, procedures and training are up to date.
