We are committed to our duty to safeguard and promote the welfare and wellbeing of children and young people in our care and those who work in the school. Through our work we aim to ensure a safe learning and working environment for students, staff, parents and visitors alike. We take our responsibilities in relation to safeguarding and child protection very seriously. Where there are safeguarding concerns, staff communicate this to the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). It is our aim to ensure that each student feels that they have a trusted adult that they can communicate their concerns or worries to.
There are occasions that our concern about a child may mean that we need to consult other agencies. We always aim to work in partnership with parents to ensure that the appropriate support and interventions are in place to support the child. We work hard to establish positive relationships with professionals outside of International School Saigon Pearl (ISSP) who can offer specialist support.
Our Restorative Practice approach supports the social and emotional aspects of learning which is fully supported by homeroom and specialist teachers. We employ an open door policy and encourage all students and parents to share concerns so that we can support with appropriate interventions. Parent workshops are offered to provide an opportunity to learn about and discuss topical issues, such as cyber safety.
Supporting our positive emotions and our Restorative Practice program ensures that personal growth and happiness align with to our mission and vision as a school
