WELCOME TO OUR
Parents are important stakeholders in the school. Parents (and students) have opportunities to provide input into decisions concerning the curricular and extra-curricular programs.
CHILD PROTECTION POLICY
The purpose of the policy is the protection of children and the prevention of child abuse or neglect, which, in this policy, means any kind of neglect, non-accidental physical injury, or emotional ill-treatment.
This policy applies wherever staff or volunteers are working with students even when this is away from the School, for example at an activity centre or on an educational visit.
Students have the right to:
feel safe and protected from any form of abuse or neglect
a positive and supportive environment where they feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and have a sense of being valued
a safe environment in which they can learn and develop
know that there are adults in the school whom they can approach if they are worried
develop the skills they need, to recognize and stay safe from abuse, through the Civics and Moral Education curriculum
be protected by a behaviour policy, which is aimed at supporting vulnerable students in the school
know that some behaviour is unacceptable and they are valued and not to be blamed for any abuse which has occurred
According to our Professional Standards every staff member at USAIS has the responsibility to:
actively supervise students and generally take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety and well-being of students under their supervision
follow the school's child protection policies and safety procedures
respect the rights of students, families, and colleagues to confidentiality and therefore only discuss students’ or colleagues’ performance with people who need to be involved professionally.

About our Charging Policy
At USAIS we recognize that children learn most effectively from first-hand experience. Enriching and extending the curriculum is therefore a priority providing opportunities for discovery, enjoyment, inspiration, which lead to greater understanding and deeper learning.
Parents are asked for contributions to cover the cost of all trips out of school and for some of the groups that visit. These include visits to outside venues, sports, residential trips and other activities.
