Child Protection | SISD

All members of the SISD community have a duty of care towards the safety of our students. Our Child Protection and Safeguarding policy is aligned with guidelines given by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Community Development Authority (CDA) in Dubai. The Child Protection team at SISD places an emphasis on training and development. The school has a partnership with the Educational Collaborative for International Schools (ECIS) for staff training in the Level 3 Child Protection and Safeguarding course. Visitors are expected to comply with Child Protection and Safeguarding procedures at SISD. SISD has adopted a safe recruitment policy to ensure that employees are aligned with health and safety practices. Child Protection and Safeguarding is a shared responsibility lead by a responsible team.
