Safeguarding

We are committed to promoting and encouraging the highest standards of safeguarding and child protection in member schools and the wider British international school sector. We offer online and face-to-face training covering a range of safeguarding topics. 

"It was excellent to work with colleagues from schools in the area: share stories, challenges and to be able to provide each other with some reassurance."
