Child Protection and Safeguarding at ACS (International)
ACS (International) is aligned with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Singapore’s Child Protection Services and the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection that has set the standards for safeguarding in schools worldwide. ACS (International) expects all individuals and groups affiliated with the school community to act with integrity and to take responsibility for keeping students safe.
At ACS (International) we know that learners need a secure and supported environment in which to learn. We believe that every child and young person, regardless of age, has at all times and in all situations a right to feel safe and protected.
ACS (International) aims to be a child safe organisation in which all adults take responsibility for being aware of the dangers of child abuse, committed to preventing harm to our students, responding to any concerns about child safety or wellbeing, and knowing how to report those concerns.
