ISB Child Protection

Philosophical Statement

 

We believe that students at ISB, for the full and harmonious development of their personality, grow in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding (adapted from UN Convention of the Rights of the Child). Whilst it is not possible to fully protect all students, ISB has a Child Protection Policy in place to respond to concerns of ‘physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal guardian(s)’ or any other person who comes into contact with the child. (Article 19, UN Convention of the Rights of the Child)

In line with the school’s Mission and Philosophy, ISB is committed to ensuring that all children in our care are afforded a safe and secure environment that nurtures academic, social and emotional growth. To this end, ISB views this commitment as a ‘partnership’ (ISB Mission and Philosophy), involving all members of ISB community.

As a school located in Switzerland, we comply with Swiss Federal and Cantonal laws pertaining to child protection.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY


MYP1 Student
(USA)


"I find that ISB is very special for me because I am experiencing a new kind of learning which will help me later on. I am also introduced to many different cultures and to people from many countries of the world. It is helping me learn how people live in different countries everywhere. I am also at an advantage because i am immersed in learning two foreign languages and I would not have learned that where I used to live."



PYP6 Student
(French)


"Teachers are great and many nice people come from different countries all around the world. I just like the way you are always welcome. I have been at ISB since PYP1 and I still think ISB rocks!!!
