Safeguarding has always been, and remains today, an approach to identification, assessment and mitigation of risk. In respect of all our clients who work with children, we have consistently advocated a “Safeguarding Risk Register” approach to assist in this. The approach enables organisations to identify safeguarding risks to children in their care, assess and prioritise them based on the likelihood and the severity of impact, and agree mitigation measures targeted to the individual risks with a view to reducing risk to an acceptable level.
The Association of International Schools in Africa is dedicated to serving its members throughout Africa during this challenging time. Please let us know if you require additional or specific information, resources and or support, and we will endeavour to assist you as soon as possible.
