Harmful Sexual Behaviours

Reducing the risk of sexual violence and sexual harassment is considered in the context of developing a whole school culture of safeguarding.  The procedures to deal with sexual violence and sexual harassment are transparent.  Staff undergo training through briefings, quizzes and yearly sessions in which they explore how safeguarding risks manifest at Westminster and the local area.  All staff know how to raise a concern they may have about a pupil, or another adult.  A flow Chart is below.

Westminster has developed an effective programme of personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) and sex and relationships education (SRE).  Pupils are helped to understand safeguarding issues, how to raise a concern they may have about themselves, or a friend or peer; and learn to recognise  and develop healthy and respectful relationships, avoiding stereotypes and promoting equality.  Pupils are taught that sexual violence and sexual harassment is always wrong.

School has access to external, specialist organisations to support its pupils.
