ISB Child Protection Philosophical Statement
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.
