Our security policy covers:

Entry and Exit Procedures
Campus Safety
Student Safety
Evacuation Procedures

The safety of your child and the security of our campuses is of utmost importance to AIS. Consequently all the school campus grounds and the exit / entry procedures have been carefully planned with your child’s safety in mind and are continuously monitored.

Entry and Exit procedures

All parents, staff and other authorized people are issued photo identity badges which need to be scanned at the entry point

No person is allowed access to any child without prior written consent/ notification by the authorized care giver/parent.

Campus Safety

We have procedures in place to maximize the safety of our children when toileting and changing after Physical Education and Swimming activities

CCTV surveillance is used at all locations deemed to require extra supervision, including school buses.

Student Safety

At AIS we are highly conscious of the requirement for a child safety program for all class levels which helps students become aware of potential dangers and protective strategies and support.

Our intensive CHILD SAFE course therefore aims at encouraging children to identify unsafe situations or potentially unsafe situations and to develop practical strategies to preserve their physical and emotional safety. 

The program is based on 2 major premises
1. We all have the right to feel safe all the time.
2. Nothing is so awful that we can't talk with someone about it.

There are two corresponding core concepts:

Early Warning Signs
Children are encouraged to recognise their feelings of safety in different situations. When we feel unsafe, our bodies tell us through physical sensations that something is wrong. Within the program these sensations are called early warning signs.

Children are encouraged to develop a ‘Safety Network’ of trusted adults who will listen to them, believe them and help them if they need help. Networks of trusted people should be people children can talk to about all things, whether they are good or of a concern to them. In a personal emergency, children are encouraged to use safety strategies and personal networks. 

Evacuation and Lockdown

The school’s evacuation plan ensures that all staff and students are well briefed on how to act in either a lockdown or evacuation emergency. In the event of any decision to evacuate, lockdown or vary the normal routine, our first priority is to ensure the safety of the children, and then to inform parents as quickly as possible. It should be stressed that these are emergency procedures only and there is no suggestion that they will be required. AIS, however, conducts regular evacuation and lockdown drills to ensure that the process can operate smoothly.

We would greatly appreciate your feedback on how we can improve our procedures or address any concerns that you may have. Suggestions from parents on such matters are always taken seriously and can be directed to:
