Child Protection

Lincoln School is committed to protecting the safety and rights of children in keeping with our core values.

Lincoln School endorses the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child which was ratified by our host country, Nepal, in 1990, and codified in Nepal’s Children’s Act in 1992. In the spirit of the Convention, Lincoln School seeks to provide all our students with a safe and secure environment, acknowledging that all children have the right to be treated with respect and dignity at all times.

The child protection team has participated in international training to continuously strengthen existing child protection and safeguarding systems in the school

The School’s Child Protection Guidelines provide child protection standards that encompass all cultures and international law. Lincoln School has a five-team child protection team that works to train staff and ensure the safety of all community members. Lincoln School uses international recruiting agencies during the hiring process. All candidates are required to submit an international background check before employment.
