Health, Wellbeing and Child Protection

ISP’s first priority is to provide a safe and healthy environment for students and the entire ISP community.

The ISP Psychologist & Wellbeing Coordinator oversees mental health & wellbeing Programmes, consulting with and assessing students to ensure they have the best educational plan, and promoting social-emotional wellbeing throughout the school.

The Psychologist and Wellbeing Coordinator works in partnership with Elementary, Middle and Upper School Counselors and school nurses. All ISP employees receive ongoing child protection and first aid training and are subject to regular police background checks.

ISP Child Protection Policy

ISP’s Child Protection Policy is based the work of the International Task Force on Child Protection, local Czech laws relating to the safety of children, and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Policy details the nature of different types of potential alarm and abuse that children and young people can face. It also provides practical and procedural information that any member of the ISP community may refer to if they have concerns about the safety, wellbeing or security of a student or students.

As a member of the Central and Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA), ISP is a signatory to the CEESA Safeguarding and Child Protection Statement.

ISP states clearly and categorically that any conduct which potentially or actually causes harm or alarm to students is not tolerated. Any allegations of such conduct will be handled (in partnership with the relevant authorities, if appropriate), in line with the ISP Child Protection Policy.
