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.
