Fukuoka International School takes its responsibility to safeguard children and all employees and does so by:
Providing a safe environment in which students can grow and learn.
Carefully checking the background and employment history of all employees prior to appointment.
Equipping students with the confidence and skills they need to keep them safe.
Developing and implementing clear procedures for identifying and reporting suspected cases of abuse.
Supporting students and staff in accordance with an agreed and regularly reviewed Child Protection process and plan.
FIS attempts to:
Establish and maintain an environment where students feel secure, where they feel able to talk and where they know they will be heard.
Include opportunities for training for all FIS employees to be made aware of their responsibilities and to be guided towards appropriate responses.
Include opportunities within the homeroom and advisory curriculum for students to develop the skills they need to stay safe (to include guidance relating to online security).
Ensure that students know that there are caring, approachable adults in the school with whom they can share their concerns.
FIS supports students through:
The schools’ behaviour policies as stated in the Student/Parent Handbook.
The school mission and vision – which promotes a positive, supportive and secure environment in which students feel valued and where their concerns may be heard.
