We think our students are fantastic but it makes us so proud when we hear it from members of the public! 'I was carrying a heavy desk and one of your pupils, noticed us carrying the desk and immediately stopped to help us carry until the end of the road until the junction.'

School’s nearly out for the summer! 📚✏️☀️ on the past school year can help us feel a sense of closure before enjoying a well deserved break. We want you to know that however you or your child is feeling about the end of the year is perfectly understandable. https://t.co/eaOuvevbyV

As sad as our pupils were about the final, they were devastated to see the ugly, racist abuse that followed. ’s response is brave and dignified. He is and always will be a role model to children in this country, on and off the pitch. https://t.co/5ZXnd3lbmi

Announcement

Harmful Sexual Behaviour in Schools

Harmful Sexual Behaviour in schools

Sexual abuse, sexual violence and sexual harassment in any form are abhorrent and it is vital that reports of abuse are appropriately investigated and victims supported and protected.

At HABE we take our safeguarding responsibilities extremely seriously but the “Everyone’s Invited campaign” has reminded us that there is more we need to do.

On 31 March, the Secretary of State announced that he had asked Ofsted to undertake a thematic review into sexual abuse across state and independent schools and colleges. The review was published on 10th June 2021, and looked at the processes in place within schools to allow pupils to report concerns freely, knowing these will be taken seriously and dealt with swiftly and appropriately.

A dedicated NSPCC helpline is now available to support anyone who has experienced sexual abuse in educational settings or has concerns about someone or the issues raised. The dedicated NSPCC helpline number is 0800 136 663 and more information is available at: Dedicated helpline for victims of abuse in schools NSPCC.

Statutory safeguarding guidance and advice are very clear on our schools legal duties and the policies and processes already in place to safeguard children.

Part 5 of Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE 2020) provides schools with detailed guidance about child-on-child sexual violence and sexual harassment, including responding to reports of abuse and protecting victims. Part 5 also signposts to the wider specialist support that is available to us as a school.

Alongside this, recent government guidance documents support us to understand what child-on-child sexual violence and sexual harassment looks like, how to prevent it, how to respond to reports of it, and how to support victims. The Safeguarding team refer to this document in all reported cases.

National guidance is very clear on how we as a school should work with our local multi-agency children’s partnerships as a relevant agency and how any concerns about a child should be referred. We will always look to contact our local multi-agency children’s partnership as well as the police for further advice and support when needed.

The curriculum for Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) has included this topic for both Key Stage 3 and 4 starting with a whole school student survey with workshops planned for the beginning of the Autumn term. At HABE assemblies have and are continuing to take place with this in mind, and we are reviewing our PHSE/RSHE curriculum to ensure our students are well equipped to report and deal with sexual abuse, sexual violence and sexual harassment especially if it takes place in school. We must ensure our students have confidence that they can report all instances to any teacher and the safeguarding team.

We always have and will continue to take these matters very seriously. The Everyone’s Invited campaign has rightly served to focus our minds on the need to continue to work together to protect children.

If you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further, please make contact with the school Designated Safeguarding Lead – Mr Rispoli and Mrs Amos.
