Child Protection Policy

All of us who are involved with working with children and young people must do our utmost to ensure their protection and welfare.I know that this responsibility is taken very seriously by our schools and that there is a very strong culture of child protection across the school sector:

 

At English Club Laos we:

- Believe the welfare of the children and young people who attend our school or other services is paramount.

- Believe that children and young people should never experience abuse or bullying of any kind.

- Recruit staff and volunteers ensuring all necessary checks are carried out.

-Recognise that all children and young people regardless of age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation have a right to equal protection from harm or abuse.

- Are committed to safeguarding the well-being of all children and young people who are in our care while in our school and whom all our staff come into contact with.

-  Ensure that we provide a safe physical and emotional environment for our children, young people, students, staff and volunteers.

-  Are committed to promoting the rights of children and young people to be protected, to be listened to, and to have their own views and concerns taken into consideration.

- Ensure that all staff and volunteers are made aware of and are familiar with the child protection policy through ongoing training.

- Are committed to reviewing our child protection annually.

This policy applies to all staff and volunteers who have contact with children and young people through their work on behalf of our school English Club Laos.
