Health and Safety
Léman’s secure, fully enclosed campus uses a state-of-the-art security system developed in consultation with the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu, and it has been evaluated and approved by major multinational corporations in the city. On-campus guards monitor an advanced security-camera system 24 hours a day.
We also have a Health and Safety Committee which consist of school leadership team member, Facilities and Operations Manager, School Nurse and representatives of teacher and parents to monitor and review the health safety policies and procedures on campus. There are also regular emergency evacuations or drills on campus.
Our school has a very robust system of background checks. As part of the Nord Anglia Education group, we require non-criminal records of all employees as part of our pre-employment conditions.
In addition, all new teachers are required to have two references from their previous employer. We only accept referees who have worked with the individual in a professional capacity. An important and statutory requirement of the written reference is a set of questions specifically about knowledge of accusations or offences relating to the safety or well-being of students.
Lastly, all of our staff complete a formal programme of Child Protection Training, recognised by the NSPCC in the UK, which helps them to monitor children in our care for signs of abuse or neglect from any source.
While the AQI readings at our school are consistently better than the city centre, each of our classrooms is fitted with a centrally controlled high volume air filtration system. Our classroom air quality is computer monitored and maintained to a very high standard.
Our first priority is to make sure that your child feels safe, happy and part of a family.
We have a full time qualified nurse working at our Nurse's Station on campus. The school nurse provides emergency medical attention, prevention and early detection of health problems that are common in schools. She monitors chronic illnesses; supervises vaccination records and medical check-ups; and, administers medicines to students.
