École Mondiale World School is committed to protect the health, safety and welfare of students who are members of our school community. Child abuse and neglect are violations of a child’s human rights and are obstacles to a child’s education as well as to their physical, emotional, and social development. We are committed to ensuring that all members of our community are aware of and held accountable to high standards of care, respect, integrity and trust and that they all understand their obligation to protect the welfare of children and report any suspicion or knowledge of child endangerment.
The school has a Code of Conduct, a Child Protection Policy and procedures which are in accordance of the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection and are consistent with our school’s mission and vision. Our Child Protection policy is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC, 1989) of which India is a signatory. As an international school implementing its child protection policy, École Mondiale World School will act in accordance with the following legislation and guidance:
Parties shall take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal guardian(s) or any other person who has the care of the child.
