At Hanoi International School, we believe that we have a shared responsibility for protecting the students that attend our school. Every year, we help all of our teachers, teaching assistants, administrative staff, cleaners, bus drivers, security personnel, and bus monitors to understand the child protection processes and policy that we have in place at school.
During this annual professional development, we discuss our shared vision for child protection, we meet the team responsible for child protection, we consider signs that may indicate that a child protection investigation may be necessary and we look at what happens after a child protection referral is made.
All HIS teachers and teaching assistants have completed or are completing Level 2 Child Protection training through (ECIS) Educational Collaboration for International Schools.
On June 1st, 2017, Vietnam adopted a new law ensuring the enforcement of children’s rights in accordance with the spirit of the United Nations Conventions of the Rights of the Child. Accordingly, all staff uphold children’s right to safety and protection from abuse and will consistently and coherently respond every time we suspect a child’s rights are being denied.
