We believe that all young people have a right to attend school and learn in a safe environment. Young people should be free from harm from other young people and adults.
Safeguarding legislation and government guidance say that safeguarding means:
- Protecting children from maltreatment
- Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
- Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
- Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome
THE SAFE FORM
Students who wish to report an incident to a member of school staff, should complete THE TGS6F SAFE FORM. Students should complete the form to report any concerns they may have about any area of well-being and safeguarding; a member of the Sixth Form Team will then follow up with them as a matter of the utmost importance.
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding. School staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating.
Following the troubling testimonies of sexual harassment and abuse documented on the Everyone's Invited website the NSPCC has a new helpline available to support children and young, people, and offer guidance to adults and staff working with pupils.
The helpline can be contacted on 0800 136 663, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
