CAG is an educational institution committed to safeguarding the rights of all children in the school's care, supporting the effective compliance with Guatemala's Child Protection Law, which includes the basic guidelines of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Both regulations raise global concerns about child abuse and neglect, preventing any violation of their human rights.
According to these regulations, the school must ensure that all children under their care are provided with a safe and secure environment in which they can grow and develop both at school and away. Therefore, CAG recognizes that it has an institutional role as a protector of children, seeking to be a haven for students who may be experiencing abuse or neglect in any aspect of their lives.
In this sense, CAG within its jurisdiction establishes a responsible set of appropriate professional practices, protocols, and policies to ensure that staff, operations, and programs do not cause harm to children, and if harm is expected then staff, operations, and programs have the inherent responsibility to report any concerns and suspicions. The distribution of the policy of safeguarding children occurs annually to all members of the CAG community by communicating through staff training and distribution of the parent and student handbook. In doing so, CAG affirms its commitment towards the safety of children, and by reviewing this policy annually for the commitment towards compliance and effectiveness in its practice.
