Child Protection Policy

A Child Protection Policy (CPP) is a set of guidelines and procedures designed to ensure the safety and well-being of students in an institution. The primary goal of our school is to create a safe environment for students and promote the holistic development of the students.

·         The Child Protection Committee (CPC) must have a meeting at the beginning of every academic year, followed by one meeting every quarter.

·         Investigation will be done following standard protocol and will be throughout kept confidential. The child will be informed about the outcome once the investigation is completed.

·         In case of criminal offense, CPC must conduct a meeting within 1 hour and for non-legal offenses meeting must be held within 24 hours after the complaint has been filed.

·         The school will report the offence to the concerned law enforcement agencies as and when required.

·         If abuse is reported against any existing student or school staff, then he/she will be suspended for 15 days within which all investigations must be completed.

·         Background checks must be done for all the children and staff involved in the incident.

·         About any complaint, concerned parents will be informed immediately after discussion with the authority.

·         If the reported allegations turn out to be false, then an investigation will be done against the complainant.

·         When the matter is closed, the school will keep a post-incident report. A record must be kept using a reference number.

·         Amendments will be done in the CPP from time to time by the CPC.

·         Awareness programs are organized for students to educate them about child protection issues, Juvenile Justice Act, 2000 and POCSO, 2012.
