CHILD SAFE GUARDING

At Lahore American School we believe that every child has the right to develop themselves physically, emotionally and intellectually while being protected from any form of violence, abuse or neglect. Child abuse and neglect are concerns throughout the world and are violations of a child’s human rights. These are also obstacles to their education and wellbeing as well as their physical, emotional and spiritual development. LAS endorses the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and seeks to be a safe place for students who may be experiences the above mentioned in any aspect of their life.

All staff employed by Lahore American School are responsible for the care, safety, and protection of children. This responsibility extends to the identification and timely response to concerns regarding the possible sexual, physical, psychological and emotional abuse or neglect of a child.
