Manarat School – Kuwait (MSK) is committed to ensure that the physical and psychological welfare of our students are our top priority. The behavior is an outward manifestation of inner stability and security of the child. Child abuse might cause disordered psychological development and behavior problems.
MSK adheres to child protection custody and guidelines as set by the Kuwait National Child Protection (KNCRP) Program and follows Kuwait Child’s right law number 21 for year 2015. MSK created its own Child protection policy based on research from different countries around the world, taking into consideration what fits the Kuwaiti law and the Kuwaiti culture (Refer to MSK Child Protection Policy in the handbooks section).
Child abuse, as defined by the World Health Organization is the most comprehensive: “[Child abuse may include] all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment,…, neglect or negligent treatment or commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to the child’s health, survival, development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility, trust or power.” It refers for all ages till 18 years old.
MSK prepared workshops for staff, parents, and students to ensure their understanding of it.
MSK mandates any staff member to report suspected child abuse to the school Child Protection Committee if they have sensible suspicion or knowledge that child abuse has occurred.
MSK is committed to take all the required actions as needed.
