Child Protection and Safeguarding
Shrewsbury International School Hong Kong is fully committed to keeping every child safe - everywhere.
Our approach to child protection and safeguarding has been shaped by Hong Kong Ordinance, the Hong Kong Social Welfare Department’s Protecting Children from Maltreatment 2020, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 (UK) and the Children Act 1989 and 2004 (UK), sections of which, such as the welfare checklist, have been regionally adopted. Our nurturing and stimulating environment promotes the social, physical, psychological and moral development of each individual student.
