Safeguarding and Child Protection
KIS Reignwood Park is a 'Child Safe' School. There are clear guidelines for all community members regarding expectations when working and interacting with our students to ensure their safety and well-being while in our care. All of our staff participate in ongoing child protection training.
At KIS Reignwood Park, we advocate for inclusivity. Our students are encouraged to celebrate and respect each other's differences and acknowledge each other's strengths and talents. Our students are continually developing their multicultural and international mindsets.
Social and Emotional Support
Strong pastoral care practices, Personal, Social, and Health Education curriculum, and social-emotional counselors all support our students' well-being and help them prepare to take on the challenges of adolescence and adulthood. Students are supported, if needed, in solving problems, issues relating to friendships, relationships, peer pressure, and other problems that may occur in their lives.
The KIS Reignwood Park campus is a safe learning environment in which students can learn. CCTV cameras, automated flap-gates, personal electronic ID cards for all community members, and our professional and friendly school security staff stationed at the entrance to the school ensure that all community members are accounted for and safe when on campus.
The school has detailed measures in place to support student health. All staff at KIS Reignwood Park who work directly with the students regularly participate in First Aid training. The school has three infirmaries with full-time nurses and first aid equipment, including AED devices.
Students and staff regularly practice evacuation (fire) drills and lockdown drills. Emergency and crisis plans are in place so the school can act quickly and effectively in response to any situations that may arise.
