Safeguarding experts and school leaders came together at "The Bangladesh Safeguarding Summit" to establish international standards and practices for safeguarding school students. Simon O'Grady, Founding Headmaster of Haileybury Bhaluka, was delighted to collaborate with The British Council. He shares how Haileybury Bhaluka is supporting safeguarding in all schools in Bangladesh via the newly formed B-SAFE (Bangladesh Safeguarding Alliance for Educators), open to all schools.

At Haileybury Bhaluka, pupils who will be applying to universities in any country will have access to specialised advice and counselling so that they make the best possible choices. We will ensure that every pupil has the opportunity to take advantage of all the support they need when it comes to testing, essay writing, financial aid applications and interviews which also includes support for specialised university entrance examinations (for example to Oxford and Cambridge).
Haileybury Bhaluka understands that students learn at different rates and may require additional support in order to access curriculum. It is our priority to ensure that each Haileyburian is known and provided with every opportunity to achieve, which is why we have established a Learning Support Department.
Ranging from music and sport alongside Model UN, public speaking, and debate - we offer a wide range of organised co-curricular activities designed for our pupils to discover and experience new possibilities in the safe and disciplined environment of our campus. We strongly believe that such discoveries lead to the excellence of character we all desire for our children.
From education and service to the arts and sport, Haileybury has a rich history of inspiring pupils of today to go on and influence the world of tomorrow. Christopher Nolan, a notable Haileybury alumnus, has proved to be one of the most exciting, innovative and successful filmmakers in the world with films such as Dunkirk, Insomnia, Interstellar and, of course, the famous Batman trilogy.
