All staff and volunteers at St Andrews International School are committed to keeping children safe, ensuring the well-being of our school community and promoting a culture of care.

Cognita Schools expect all staff, volunteers and other third parties to share this commitment to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. Safer recruitment practice and pre-employment background checks are undertaken before any appointments are confirmed.

What does safeguarding mean?

We have a strong safeguarding culture at St. Andrews and this can be seen through our:

  Rigorous safer recruitment process

  Regular safeguarding training for all staff

  Positive student to student and student and staff relationships

  Student consulted PSHE education program

  Student voice initiatives

  Student and staff mentor system

  Pastoral care systems

  Independent safeguarding reviews

External Support

Sometimes we may seek support from external agencies, including for early help and intervention. We have good links with a range of support services such as counseling, psychologists, SEN specialists and behaviour therapists.

We have a designated member of staff who takes responsibility for this area.

Parent Safeguarding Handbook

We have developed a parent safeguarding handbook which aims to provide our community with detailed information regarding how we implement our safeguarding policy at S107. Please access this booklet using the attachment below.
