Keeping students safe in international schools

Safeguarding regulations in international schools can vary based on local governance so depending on where your staff are coming from they may have different safeguarding knowledge. We can help ensure your whole school is up-to-date and compliant with the latest legal requirements.

Earlier this year, the Spanish Congress approved Rhodes Law, a ground-breaking legislation in Spain to increase protection for children. This law, which now must pass through the Spanish Senate, has been described as one of the most advanced child protection legislations.  

Though the law has not yet been instated, it highlights the need for greater protection for children in international locations.

How we can help

Our Child Protection for International Schools online training course provides thorough insight into child protection in international educational settings, covering the essential facts which contribute to the health and welfare of children and young people.

This course has been developed in partnership with the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and will help staff understand: 

  1. What the four main types of child abuse are, and how to recognise the physical and behavioural signs of abuse 

  2. How to respond if you have concerns about a child’s welfare, and the importance of being vigilant 

  3. What you and your school can do to ensure that the children in your care stay safe from harm

  4. The importance of underpinning safeguarding in your school

This course is available to buy individually online or as part of Tes Safeguarding, our online safeguarding and duty of care training package. As part of this package, we offer Child Protection for International Schools in English, Spanish and Arabic.
