Child on Child abuse including sexual harassment and violence
At Bishop Thomas Grant School we have a strong culture of safeguarding. We do not tolerate any form of sexual harassment or violence. As per government guidance in 'Keeping Children Safe In Education 2023', the school works on the assumption that sexual harassment and violence ‘could happen here' and insists that no member of our community ever treats sexual violence or harassment as 'banter' or 'a part of growing up'.
In order to ensure our culture of safeguarding is consistent and embedded throughout, our school puts a series of proactive measures to reduce the risk of such incidents. Along with regular reinforcement, staff and student training and consistency, the key strategy is education. Specifically of appropriate behaviour through our Pastoral Care, Assemblies and PSHE/RSE.
