Child Protection and Safeguarding

Seoul Foreign School (SFS) is committed to protecting students and providing an environment that provides safety and security to each child, allowing them to be their best selves.

Seoul Foreign School’s Child Protection Policy is informed by the Statutes of the Republic of Korea, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and best practice as identified by the International Task Force for Child Protection.

Seoul Foreign School (SFS) fully recognizes its responsibility and unique position as it pertains to child protection. We also realize the importance of both the family and the community in building a safe environment for all students. As we continue to work together, the child’s best interest will always be the focus of our efforts. Seoul Foreign School has a number of policies, procedures, and documents in place to safeguard all members of our community.

  • Child Safeguarding Guide
  • Child Protection Policy
  • Safeguarding Behavior Agreement (previously titled Code of Conduct)
  • Clear protocols when reporting child protection concerns
  • Procedural flowchart when reporting child protection concerns
  • Child protection and safeguarding training for all faculty and staff
  • Child protection and safeguarding curriculum for all SFS students
  • Designated child protection leaders throughout the school
  • Clear protocols when conducting off-campus trips
  • Lanyards/ID cards worn by all adults on campus
  • Expansive CCTV coverage across campus
  • A secure campus with a single-entry point

All children have legal and moral rights to their individuality, that when protected, will develop into the ability to meet the needs of the family, community, and society as a whole. Every child and student in the Seoul Foreign School community will be treated with respect and dignity at all times. Given reasonable cause to believe that any child’s rights have been violated, under any circumstance, SFS will use all available resources to protect those rights. 

Thank you for supporting our efforts to create a safe and healthy environment for our children. If you have any questions or concerns about the SFS Child Protection Policy, please contact the SFS Child Protection Lead (
