Sexual Abuse and Harrassment

We believe that all children have a right to attend school and learn in a safe environment free from harm by both adults and other pupils. We recognise that some safeguarding concerns can occur via peer on peer abuse and this abuse can cause both significant physical and emotional harm.

We encourage students to report any concerns they have to a member of school staff as soon as they can so that we can act on these and our response is outlined in our Child Protection Policy. 

The DFE and NSPCC have worked in partnership to launch a new helpline if children, parents or professionals are concerned. Please find the details of this below:

NSPCC helpline Report Abuse in Education 

0800 136 663 or help@nspcc.org.uk

All children have a right to be safe from sexual and other forms of abuse. The Government’s Stop Abuse Together Campaign is working to stop child sexual abuse, and offers support and guidance to anyone that needs it.
