Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence between children in schools and colleges
Advice for governing bodies, proprietors, headteachers, principals, senior leadership teams and designatedsafeguarding leads
This is advice is provided by the Department for Education (the department). The focus is sexual violence and sexual harassment between children at school and college. For the purposes of this advice, a child is anyone under the age of 18. It provides advice on what sexual violence and sexual harassment is, how to minimise the risk of it occurring and what to do when incidents occur, or are alleged to have occurred.
As part of our commitment to ‘child centred policing’, Hampshire Police has worked in partnership with education experts and youth practitioners to develop Safe4me, a web-based resource and information library providing support to schools, partner agencies and parents with keeping children and young people safe and informed about current risks they may face growing up.
Designed as a one-stop shop, the free to use website provides a range of subject specific toolkits and sections consisting of useful content such as pre-prepared lesson plans and ideas, activities, advice and additional information from credible organisations; features include news pages, campaigns, service directories and opportunities to share information or get involved in initiatives.
Ongoing development means that Safe4me will consistently evolve according to risks, demand and need, ensuring it remains current and credible at all times. It is important to future development and the overall of value of Safe4me that users have the opportunity to input their knowledge and expertise to the site, inviting users to share relevant information and resources they feel would be of value to others.
Please consider using Safe4me in the work you do with children, young people and their families, signposting colleagues to the site and encourage parents to refer to the relevant support section to help them, where needed, keep their children safe and informed.
Support and assistance is available Monday to Friday from the police education team via the Safe4me contact page. www.safe4me.co.uk
