Safeguarding

All staff and volunteers at Brighton College (Singapore) are committed to keeping children safe, ensuring the well-being of our school community and promoting a culture of care.

Our Commitment To Students And Parents

We are committed to our duty to safeguard and promote the welfare and wellbeing of the children in our care and those who work in the school. Through our work we aim to ensure a safe learning and working environment for students, staff, parents and visitors alike. We take our responsibilities in relation to safeguarding and child protection very seriously. It is our aim to ensure that each student feels that they have a trusted adult that they can communicate their concerns or worries too.

There are occasions that our concern about a child may mean that we need to consult other agencies. We always aim to work in partnership with parents to ensure that the appropriate support and interventions are in place to support the child.

We are also committed to providing an 'inspiring world of education'. This means that we want each student to flourish, aspire, live out their dreams, and most importantly, be comfortable with who they are.

Ensuring that our pupils develop as well-rounded individuals takes intentional effort and does not happen by chance. For this reason, we place a high emphasis on creating the right climate within our school and proactively teaching pupils about wellbeing.

Our Commitment To Staff

Staff receive regular training and updates on their professional responsibilities in relation to safeguarding and child protection. All Teaching and Operations staff hold a basic first aid qualification. Our school is supported by our onsite medical centres and qualified nurses. A clear reporting system for concerns is in place and understood by all.

Our extensive after school, camps and activities programme allows our pupils to take their learning outside of the classroom. All activities are risk assessed, and health and safety is always our priority.

Our Commitment To Visitors

We welcome parents, families and visitors to our school. However, access to the school site is closely monitored, with a 24 hour security presence. Our signing in system and colour coded lanyard system ensure that we can easily identify adults on site. All adults who work with our students, including visiting professionals, are appropriately checked and / or supervised. This also supports our emergency evacuation processes.

Our Commitment To Recruitment

Our recruitment procedures follow 'Safer Recruitment' guidelines, including rigorous background screening checks. This is supported by detailed CVs, reference checks and a robust interview process. Our recruitment ensures that we have the best team of professionals working at Brighton College (Singapore).

Our Safeguarding Lead

We have a designated member of staff who takes responsibility for this area.
