Safeguarding

Royal Greenwich Trust School holds all aspects of Inclusion and Safeguarding at the heart of its ethos. As an educational institution, we believe that every student has a right to succeed academically, socially, morally and emotionally. The Inclusion team has been restructured this academic year to ensure that the individual needs of students will be met. Students’ safety is of primary importance. All students are taught about Modern Britain and British Values and SMSC throughout the curriculum and in PSHE sessions during Tutor time. We also work collaboratively with the Safer Schools Police team to ensure our students are and stay safe.

Royal Greenwich Trust School follows the policies, practices guidance and procedures outlined by the Greenwich Safeguarding Children Partnership.

Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy

 

Domestic Violence

Domestic abuse (also called domestic violence) happens when one person hurts or bullies another person who is or was their partner or who is in the same family. It can happen between people who are going out together, living together, have children together or are married to each other. It can happen either when people live together or separately. Domestic abuse can also happen after a relationship has finished. Usually (but not always) it is the man who is the abuser and the woman who gets hurt. Although domestic abuse happens mostly between adults, young people can be affected by the abuse that they see and hear, and they can be hurt or bullied as part of domestic abuse between adults. Young people may also experience abuse from their own boy/girlfriend. Women’s Aid defines domestic abuse as an incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour, including sexual violence, in the majority of cases by a partner or ex-partner, but also by a family member or carer. It is very common. In the vast majority of cases it is experienced by women and is perpetrated by men.

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

Female Genital Mutilation comprises all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. It is also sometimes referred to as female genital cutting or female circumcision.

The procedure can cause severe bleeding, infection, infertility and even death. Afterwards, girls are often taken out of school and forced into early marriage. FGM can have devastating physical, psychological, and social consequences for the rest of girls' lives.
