Child on Child Abuse, Sexual Violence and Harassment and Harmful Sexual Behaviour:

At The Brunts Academy, part of the Greenwood Academies Trust , our position 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. We remain committed to working openly and transparently to promote mutual respect.

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 these pages on our own website or on the Greenwood Academies Trust website. 

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

The appropriate means for disclosing an allegation of abuse relating to another student is always to inform a member of the specific academy’s safeguarding team directly or a member of the Trust Safeguarding Directorate. In the event that an allegation is made against a member of staff, this must be sent to the Academy Principal or directly to the Trust Safeguarding Directorate.

We will always act on concerns raised.
