Safeguarding

Our school is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children. We are proud of the safe and happy environment that we provide and the supportive relationship our staff have with our children - something that Ofsted highlighted in our latest Ofsted Report.

Sexual Harassment
Sexual violence and sexual harassment can occur between two children of any age and sex. It can also occur through a group of children sexually assaulting or sexually harassing a single child or group of children. 
Children who are victims of sexual violence and sexual harassment will likely find the experience stressful and distressing. Children who are victims of sexual violence and sexual harassment will likely find the experience stressful and distressing.
Many parents and carers feel unsure about how to talk to their child about sex, sexuality and relationships. We have advice to help you support your child and keep them safe.   For more information on 'Healthy and Safe Relationships,' please visit:
