Managing Allegations of Abuse
This protocol provides a framework to guide school leaders and strengthen decision-making as they manage allegations of child abuse by educators and other adults currently or previously working in international school settings. This protocol is based upon: 1) the diverse national and international contexts in which schools operate, and the requirements to conform to legislation in the country where the school is based, and possibly also to regulations issued by sponsoring organisations or governments and/or accreditation bodies; 2) the responsibilities set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which is central to the protection of children across the globe; and 3) the ITFCP Statement of Commitment to Child Protection.
