Child Safeguarding

At Daegu International School, the safety and well-being of our students are our top priorities. Our Child Safeguarding Policy is designed to ensure a secure and nurturing environment for all children under our care. This policy outlines our commitment to protecting students from harm, promoting their welfare, and fostering a safe educational atmosphere.

The DIS Child Safeguarding Policy is based within the framework of international law, and is anchored in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, of which the Republic of Korea is a signatory. Equally, the Korean law enacted on January 23, 2013 reinforces the power of the previously established acts “Korean Child Welfare Act,” “Domestic Violence Prevention and Victim Protection Act,” and the “Protection of Children and Juveniles from Sexual Abuse Act” to protect children. To this end the National Child Protection Agency  was established to guarantee this law.

The school will also provide annual training for all faculty and staff, and will make every effort to implement hiring practices to ensure the safety of children. In the case of a staff member reported as an alleged offender, Daegu International School will conduct an investigation following the school's policies and procedures.

This policy is endorsed by the school, Daegu International School, and the Board of Trustees.
