A New Protocol for Managing Allegations of Child Abuse
Posted 01/12/2018 12:00


Today, we launch a new resource - the international protocol for managing allegations of child abuse by educators and other adults - developed by the International Taskforce on Child Protection and the Safeguarding Unit (Farrer & Co) to address the challenges faced by international schools when managing an allegation of abuse. Developed from multiple perspectives, in consultation with a broad range of professionals, this protocol is intended to help international school leaders navigate the complexities of responding to abuse in culturally, linguistically, and legally diverse communities.

The accompanying article (i) sets out some of the challenges faced by international school leaders when managing allegations of child abuse by educators and other adults; (ii) provides an overview of the protocol; and (iii) sets out how schools can use the protocol to manage allegations effectively.
