Working Together To Safeguard Children is saved below:

We are aware that a new version of Working Together to Safeguard Children was published in December 2023. Although our policies refer to the older version which was current at the start of the academic year we do of course comply with all the requirements of the new document.

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

Our position as a trust and within all our academies 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, and we remain committed to working openly and transparently to promote mutual respect. We will always act on concerns raised


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 individual academy websites.

Please see beneath our site specific safeguarding policy and the Trust policy. These are updated annually. 

We use the Northamptonshire Safeguarding board for updates and information. There is also lots of  helpful information for families - click on the link to access this.
