If any members of the school or local community have concerns about the welfare of a child in the school, please pass them on to the School Child Protection Team.

At E-ACT Crest Academy we use CPOMS to record all Safeguarding incidents and concerns. It enables all staff members to securely report incidents. The Safeguarding Team are immediately notified and able to respond quickly.

Sexual violence and harassment

Sexual violence and harassment between children in schools and colleges

What is sexual harassment?

Sexual harassment is any kind of unwanted behaviour of a sexual nature that makes you feel humiliated or intimidated, or that creates a hostile environment.

When someone calls you insulting sexual names, talks about you in a sexual way that makes you feel uncomfortable (like commenting on your body), or spreads sexual rumours about you, that’s sexual harassment. It can happen in person, over the phone, or online.

Sexual harassment can make you feel anxious, depressed and lead to other problems, such as difficulties sleeping.

‘Everyone’s Invited’ support

Many of you will have seen media coverage of a website called ‘Everyone’s Invited‘

At E-ACT Crest Academy, we continue to proudly promote a culture that fosters respect and healthy relationships, and challenges abuse of all kinds. We are encouraged by the fact that Ofsted will be reviewing safeguarding practices in schools across the country because of ‘Everyone’s Invited’.

As an academy we will always:

  • Enable all children to report concerns freely and in the knowledge that they will be taken seriously
  • Challenge any form of derogatory language or behaviour
  • Ensure our curriculum helps to educate pupils about appropriate behaviour
  • Work with external agencies where appropriate to ensure the right support is in place for all
  • Work with external agencies where appropriate to ensure the right support is in place for all
