Child Safeguarding Policy
Rift Valley Academy desires to uphold the Biblical tenet that every individual shall be treated with dignity, care, and respect. The administration further seeks to model principles of godly leadership, justice, and compassion. We recognize the innate vulnerability of children and their dependence on adults to protect and nurture them. We place an emphasis on child protection as integral to RVA’s core values, recognizing that in protecting the weak we are honoring the Lord whom we love, serve, and bear witness to. The devastation created by harm to children in its many forms is deplored. The safety of the child is paramount and will guide RVA in the process of evaluation and decision-making in situations that involve harm or possible harm to a child.
