Safeguarding & Child Protection
The School acknowledges that nurturing the wellbeing of children and young people and protecting them from harm requires a whole school community commitment. Tanglin aims to provide a professional and caring environment where staff, parents and children and young people feel empowered to raise concerns.
Respect: We are committed to respecting the rights of all children in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. All children have the right to education that nurtures individual talents and abilities and the right to be protected from any kind of exploitation.
Responsibility: We are committed to educating and supporting everyone in the school community to develop competence and confidence in taking responsibility for identifying and sharing concerns appropriately to ensure the care and protection of all children and young people.
Purpose: We acknowledge our privileged position and the role we play in children and young people’s lives and are committed to providing a caring, safe and stimulating environment where all children and young people can flourish.
