Whiteplains British school fully recognises its responsibilities towards child protection and safeguarding children and that we have an active role in protecting our students from harm and promoting their welfare. We recognise that we may be the only stable, secure and predictable element in the lives of children at risk, and so we endeavour to maintain an environment where students can feel secure, are encouraged to talk and are listened to. We aim to ensure that students can be supported through a school-wide ethos that promotes a positive, supportive and secure environment, valuing students’ independence, feelings and individuality.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Whiteplains British School demonstrates a clear commitment to the promotion of diversity and equality as highlighted in our Development Plan, Community Cohesion Policy and other policies and related documents.
Building resilience of young people and the promotion of fundamental Nigeria values is at the heart of preventing radicalisation. Schools can do this by providing safe places in which children can discuss controversial issues, and be given the knowledge and confidence to challenge extremist beliefs and ideologies.
Schools play a vital role in keeping children safe from harm, including from the risks of extremism and radicalisation, and in promoting the welfare of children in their care.
We are committed to ensuring that students are safe when using the internet at Whiteplains British School.
