Protocol – Managing Allegations of Child Abuse by Educators and other Adults

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. Building on the work of the International Task Force on Child Protection (ITFCP) and the Safeguarding Unit at Farrer & Co, we continue our work across professions to develop child protection resources for the international school community.

We intend to enable schools to achieve the highest possible standards in child protection and safeguarding, which may exceed those set by local law.
