Child and Data Protection

  • Child Protection

    The Anglo-American School of Sofia has a clear Child Protection Policy. AAS recognises its clear responsibility in respect of its “duty of care” to protect children and to support students in school. People serving in schools, because of their regular contact with children, are particularly well placed to detect outward signs of abuse, behaviour changes and other changes in social-emotional and academic conduct. Teachers, teaching assistants, support staff other school staff should note that reporting the suspicion of child abuse, “in good faith” exempts them from school disciplinary action in relation to the AAS Code of Professional Conduct.

    AAS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, along with their protection and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As such, all employees are required to sign a declaration that they are in the possession of the qualifications they claim; that they are not disqualified from working with children; that they have no convictions, cautions or bind-overs or are subject to any sanctions imposed by any regulatory bodies. School requires all employees to produce evidence of qualifications and references are sought from previous employers. Finally, police checks are carried out on all employees.
