Shenzhen College of International Education is committed to the safety and protection of students and all members of our school community.  Safeguarding at SCIE is defined as

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes
  • Children includes everyone under the age of 18.  (

SCIE has two Child Protection Officers who work to ensure the wellbeing of students by receiving reports from staff, monitoring incidences of suspected abuse and organising teams of relevant colleagues to make informed decisions about student wellbeing.  If necessary, referrals are made to specialists in order to support students who are in need.


SCIE Child Protection Officers:


Lisa-Michelle Haitana, Pastoral Deputy Principal

Anyone who is a member of the SCIE community should contact the persons named above if they have a safeguarding concern.


At SCIE we follow a whole school approach to safeguarding which follows the guidelines set out in UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and recommendations from the International Taskforce on Child Protection (ITFCP).


Shenzhen College of International Education as a CIS accredited school has its policies regarding safeguarding checked against the Accreditation Framework which ensures a high standard in protecting children from harm.  Our full principles and policies are available here.
