Why BFIS is the right place for you

BFIS is always open to new ideas and strategies. It empowers staff to make a difference at the whole school and classroom level. There is a family feeling and as a staff member I always feel like I am supported, valued and listened to.  The staff and leadership care about me and how I am doing. This is the only learning community that I have worked in where the conversation on the hallways and at the coffee machine is about growth and learning. Staff are learners, students are learners and the school just keeps going from strength to strength because of the staff´s team work, comradery and above all else their commitment to students. This commitment is evident in everything we do."

BFIS is committed to the safety of its students by creating a culture of transparency and speaking out against unsafe practices around children. The school culture is one that exposes inappropriate behaviors in relation to children thus preventing opportunities for any individuals to take advantage of young people.

Our Child Safeguarding and Protection Handbook and Staff Code of Conduct is currently under review. Once upgraded it will be accessible here.

Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we hold ourselves to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection.
