The American School of Paris (ASP), in partnership with our parent community, is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of our young people. We expect all ASP community members including administrators, faculty, staff, trustees, and volunteers to share this commitment. We believe that our children have a right to grow in a supportive, caring, and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse and other safeguarding concerns. School personnel are vigilant for signs of any young person in distress and are confident about applying our safeguarding processes to intervene when necessary. Our child safeguarding policy and procedures are in accordance with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, endorse the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, of which France is a signatory, and in accordance with French law.
