Sexual Harassment and Harmful Sexualised Behaviour
Our position as a trust and within all our academies is clear: sexual violence and sexual harassment are never acceptable, will never be tolerated and are not an inevitable part of growing up. Such behaviour will never go unchallenged or become accepted and we remain committed to working openly and transparently with to promote mutual respect. We will always act on concerns raised.
Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy has guidance within it around the indicators of child on child abuse and harmful sexual behaviour along with our response procedures. All relevant Safeguarding Policies are available on our Academy website. Please also see appendices for part five, child on child sexual violence and sexual harassment flow chart.
All pupils are taught the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum. The appropriate means for disclosing an allegation of abuse relating to another pupil is always to inform a member of the specific academy’s safeguarding team directly or a member of the Trust Safeguarding Directorate.
