Safeguarding

“Seisen International School, a Catholic International School, educates future world citizens to become men and women for others and with others, in the spirit of Jesus Christ. 
Seisen International School’s mission is to provide a safe environment in order to empower each student, through shared responsibility, creativity, and human interdependence, to develop their unique talents and to become competent and compassionate players in our global society, capable of empowering others and of bringing hope and peace to our ever changing world.”


Seisen International School’s mission in accordance with and support of the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1990), the recommendations based on the International Task Force on Child Protection (2015), and also in conjunction with Japanese laws regarding Child Protection, defines the term “child” as students under the age of 18. However, due to our position of trust in the lives of our students, Seisen International School acknowledges that a student at Seisen is considered under our duty of care until the time of their graduation, irrespective of the age of the student.


All Seisen International staff, faculty, and administrators are mandated to report incidences of abuse and neglect. All Seisen International staff, faculty and administrators are also required to report suspicion of abuse or neglect. All reports of abuse and neglect must be made to the Child Protection Officer / division counselor, or division principal should the counselor be unavailable, within 24 hours for immediate response. The counselor reports to the division principal and the Child Protection Officer. The Child Protection Officer must in turn report to the Head of School. Verbal reports must also be supported by signed written documentation by the person or persons submitting the report.
