Our student’s health and safety are of paramount importance.
At International School Basel there are professionally-trained and qualified nurses to provide care when needed, and clear guidelines to help maintain a healthy environment for all.
All three campuses have a medical room and qualified nurses. They provide first aid and basic medical care, and give advice regarding local health care facilities.
All our staff are trained in basic first aid and a number are certified first aiders. Staff rooms contain information about students who have serious health issues to enable staff to easily recognise these students.
All staff and parents are issued with an ID badge. This must be worn in a visible manner whilst on the school property. Visitors sign in at the main reception desk at either campus and receive a visitor’s badge. All visitors sign out and return the badges before leaving the premises. Anyone without proper ID will be asked to go back to reception to sign in.
Lockdown and evacuation practices take place on a regular basis to ensure that students and personnel on campus are well-prepared in the unlikely event of an emergency. Procedures are reviewed with students prior to the practice drills.
In line with the school’s Mission and Philosophy, International School Basel is committed to ensuring that all children in our care are afforded a safe and secure environment that nurtures academic, social and emotional growth.
To this end, we have a Child Protection Policy in place to respond to concerns of ‘physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal guardian(s)’ or any other person who comes into contact with the child. (Article 19, UN Convention of the Rights of the Child)
As a school located in Switzerland, we comply with Swiss Federal and Cantonal laws pertaining to child protection.
In the Reinach Campus Library our learning community can explore new ideas, research, study and read.
The International School Basel Reinach Library provides a curated collection of resources and research expertise to support students achieving their academic goals.
The Library offers a wide variety of resources from books and audio books to DVDs, as well as a range of resources in many languages. Library Staff encourage students to explore different topics and attain knowledge of the wider world. They conduct lessons in searching, locating and evaluating information, as well as, how to reference information accurately and transparently.
Good nutrition is a foundation for health and well-being.
Students at International School Basel are offered a variety of nutritious and balanced meals freshly prepared by our caterer, Passion Food, and can eat hot meals with a salad and dessert/fruit, or select a salad from the salad bar. A selection of prepared sandwiches and snacks are also on offer. Students have the option to sign-up for the lunch program on a daily basis, pay on the day, or bring their own lunch.
