Managing allegations of abuse against another child, adult or member of staff is a highly stressful, complex task.
It is vital that any concerns or allegation are dealt with properly and in a way that protects and upholds the dignity of all who are involved. These situations are often complex and can quickly escalate, particularly in the context of an international school community environment.
For this reason, the International Taskforce on Child Protection (ITFCP) has developed guidelines for international schools on how to manage such allegations effectively.
To read about why and how the protocol was developed, see this introductory article.
