Sexual Abuse within Schools – Child on Child Abuse, Sexual Violence and Harassment and Harmful Sexual 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 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 individual academy websites. 

All students are taught the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum.

Children Missing Education

When children are missing education, we follow the statutory government guidance: Children Missing Education.

Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Partnership guidance: Children Missing from Education.

We are aware that a new version of Working Together to Safeguard Children was published in December 2023. Although our policies refer to the older version which was current at the start of the academic year we do of course comply with all the requirements of the new document.
