School Life


At Kuwait English School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students. We endeavour to provide a secure, welcoming environment where children are safe, respected and valued; and aim to help them achieve the best possible outcomes. All school staff go through safe recruitment procedures and are trained in Child Protection. All children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Our staff are following steps established in The Kuwaiti Laws of Children’s Rights,  together with guidelines laid out in “Keeping Children Safe In Education” (UK GOV). Through our training, we are alert to any signs of neglect or physical/emotional harm and have safeguarding procedures in place in order to ensure our students receive appropriate support and protection when necessary. If you are worried about the safety or wellbeing of one of our students please do not hesitate to contact us:
