The International School of Riga believes that all children have equal rights to protection from any form of violence, abuse or neglect. Child abuse and neglect are concerns throughout the world. Child abuse and neglect are violations of a child’s human rights and are obstacles to the child’s education as well as to their physical, emotional, and spiritual development.
ISR aims to provide a safe and positive environment for all of our students. This Child Protection Policy supports Article 3.1 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that, “in all actions concerning children the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration”. We are committed to preventing child abuse and protecting children within our community.
