Safeguarding - Harmful Sexual Behaviours

The departmental advice, when referring to sexual violence refers to sexual offences as described under the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

This includes: rape, assault by penetration and sexual assault.

The advice sets out that sexual harassment is ‘unwanted conduct of a sexual nature’ that can occur online and offline.

It is likely to violate a child’s dignity, and/or makes them feel intimidated, degraded or humiliated and/or creates a hostile, offensive or sexualised environment.

Any incidents of harmful sexual behaviour are taken extremely seriously and may be reported by pupils, staff or members of the public. Any allegation must be recorded using the academy’s safeguarding procedures to the Year Team Designated Safeguarding Lead immediately using the School’s MIS System or pink safeguarding recording form. The Year Team DSL will discuss any allegation with the Senior DSL/ Assistant Head teacher or Headmaster. Appropriate actions may be taken with external agencies, police and parents/ guardians and are completed in a timely manner. Further actions may be taken against the offender in conjunction with the academy’s behaviour policy.
