Duty of Care
The provision of care on the part of ISSR is dependent upon parents and guardians providing the correct information to the school upon enrolment. Please ensure that:
- Contact details are up-to-date;
- The absence or unavailability of parents or guardians is always known;
- Medical conditions are known;
- Vaccination information is kept up-to-date.
At all times, the school will exercise its responsibility to ensure the care and safety of students based on the information at hand. When unforeseen events occur, such information will assist in the proper implementation of any relevant emergency policy.
Anti-bullying and Cyberbullying
ISSR regards bullying as a repeated and deliberate infliction or threat of harm or fear by verbal, physical, social or psychological means. Bullying impairs a student’s self-esteem and academic performance. ISSR has a zero-tolerance policy for bullying and will conduct thorough investigations and impose severe sanctions for any incidents. Bullying can occur within or outside the school premises.
Cyber-bullying is a form of bullying that uses electronic media, such as texts, calls, photos, websites, emails or chat rooms. ISSR trains its staff to handle cyber-bullying effectively and has systems to prevent and address it. ISSR restricts access to inappropriate websites and supervises internet use in school. ISSR reserves the right to take disciplinary action against cyber-bullies.
If a student becomes unwell during the school day, the school will contact the parents concerned and the student will be taken home by school personnel when parents are not free to arrange for a pick-up themselves. This will incur a small cost to parents. For students with an ailment that does not otherwise prevent their presence in school, ISSR cannot take responsibility for administering medicine. However, an arrangement can be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
Students may not have any medicine at school. If they need to take medicine during the school day, the medicine must be given to the office with a note explaining what time and how much medicine should be taken. Students may go to the office at the proper time to get their medication and take it.
Parents are responsible for updating their son / daughter’s vaccinations each year and should inform the school administration whenever there is a change of status regarding such vaccinations.
Since January 2011 all pupils, teachers and staff at ISSR have been covered by a group accident insurance policy for injury in the school grounds and during school excursions. (This insurance is not for students’ illnesses while attending ISSR). There is no additional charge to parents for this coverage, which becomes active once initial fees have been paid.
Students arriving to school on motos or bicycles must wear a safety helmet by Cambodian Law. If an accident occurs whilst commuting to and from school, and helmets are not worn, students are not covered by the ISSR insurance policy.
