Child Protection Policy
Dear Parents and ASFM Community,
The physical and emotional well-being of all students is the highest priority for the American School Foundation of Monterrey (ASFM). In accordance with our mission and vision statement Open Minds, Caring Hearts, and Global Leadership, and with the legislation of the state of Nuevo León, ASFM has developed and adopted a Child Safeguarding Policy. This guides our staff, administrators, and families in matters related to the health, safety, and care of children and adolescents in attendance at our school. Child safeguarding is a community responsibility and we share this document with all ASFM community members to address critical global issues.
The ASFM Child Safeguarding Policy is based on local and national laws, including the Mexican and State Constitution, the General Law on the Rights of Children and Adolescents, Secretaría de Educación (SE) rules and regulations, and international treaties and conventions such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
