As we move forward with our Child Protection lessons in Grades 2 – 5, we wanted to take a moment to remind the community of some important Child protection items.
- ISL recognizes that every child has the right to a safe and secure environment.
- While it is not ISL’s responsibility to monitor the conditions under which children live, the school follows its legal obligation to inform the appropriate authorities where there is suspicion of abuse.
- The use of corporal punishment (hitting or any other physical punishment) is against the law in Luxembourg. For assistance with getting support or different parenting strategies, please feel free to contact one of the members of the Child Protection Team.
Tips for children
- Touch can be good, bad or confusing.
- All students have the right to say “NO!” to touches they don’t like.
- Children can tell a trusted adult if they ever have a problem with bad or confusing touches.
Keeping your child safe
- Memorize your phone number and address, as well as the number of all emergency contacts with your child. You may also wish to have these posted somewhere accessible in your house.
- Before going on holiday, please make sure all members of your family know the emergency services number of the country you are visiting.
- Please create a secret word with your child in the event that you must send a stranger to pick them up.
- Always have a predetermined meeting spot in case you get separated in a crowd.
If you have any further questions about Child Protection we encourage you to refer to the Lower School Parent-Student handbook.
We wish you a wonderful holiday.
