In putting students first in all that we do, the issues of safeguarding and child protection are of paramount importance in Dulwich College International schools. As a world-class organisation with a strong moral purpose, we make certain that every step is taken to ensure the safety and wellbeing of each child in our care. Every member of staff employed at the College partakes in safeguarding training related to their position. In addition all parent helpers in the College attend an initial safeguarding session with yearly updates thereafter.
We believe that children should be respected and their views heard and that it is our responsibility to ensure that each child forms stable relationships with adults, built on trust and consistent support for children’s individual needs. This approach guides the behaviour of all professionals in our schools. Our child-centred approach to safeguarding is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
CONCERNS AND COMPLAINTS POLICY
Dulwich College (Singapore) considers parents to be partners in the education and development of the students, and firmly believes that communication is essential to the success of this partnership. The College is committed to keeping parents fully informed of both general and specific matters relating to their children. In return, the College asks that parents share their thoughts and views as early as possible to allow the College to address any concerns before they become problems.
