At the International School of Düsseldorf we are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued.
We take seriously our moral and legal responsibility to safeguard and promote each child's universal right to protection from violence, exploitation, neglect and abuse (whether physically, psychologically, emotionally or sexually).
ISD Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy and Procedures are established in alignment with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and local German law. Child protection work is informed by the International Task Force on Child Protection which is a branch of one of our accrediting bodies, the Council of International Schools.
ISD has appointed a Safeguarding Lead and two Safeguarding Coordinators in order to best promote and support the education and training of staff as related to child protection under German school law to ensure that all suspicions of abuse are promptly reported and appropriately responded to.
