Safeguarding: Everyone’s Invited – Elevate’s Initial Response

Over the last few weeks we have seen numerous media reports linked to the testimonies placed by young people on the Everyone’s Invited website.

We wish to reassure you that safeguarding and protecting our children is the key priority for Elevate and its Academies. We have ensured robust measures and processes are in place with regard to children knowing who to report any concerns they may have and feeling safe and secure that the matter will be dealt with. We also ensure our staff receive appropriate and regular training.

It is not only schools who are responsible for the safety of our children, parents also have a responsibility to talk to their children about how they behave towards others including how they use social media and gaming consoles, social media companies have a responsibility to take more care about how their platforms are used and the criminal justice system has a responsibility to show young people that it can be trusted to prosecute and bring to justice sexual offenders. Useful links for parents are on each Academy’s website.

At Elevate, our Academies work very hard on all aspects of safeguarding, and we are committed to always taking these matters extremely seriously.

All of our Academies have evolved their Relationship and Sex Education Curriculum to ensure that it engages children in age appropriate discussion within a safe environment,  which is proportional to the development of their mental stages. If necessary this would include provision during periods of remote education.  

In addition, robust procedures are in place to handle any report of sexual violence or sexual harassment. Fundamentally, an understanding for all children of healthy relationships, acceptable   behaviour and the right of everyone to equal treatment will help ensure that children treat each other well and go on to be respectful and kind adults.

All of our Academies teach respect, honesty, kindness, tolerance and courtesy.

To be very clear at this stage, sexual violence and sexual harassment are not acceptable, will never be tolerated and are not an inevitable part of growing up. They have never, and will not ever be tolerated in our Academies and any report from our children will always be appropriately addressed.

To our children - as always, please do not feel alone in dealing with difficult issues. We are here for you.

There is also a new dedicated, confidential helpline, run by the NSPCC, available to current or past victims as well as parents, carers or professionals with concerns.

The dedicated NSPCC helpline number is 0800 136 663

 Elevate Multi Academy Trust policies are circulated to all Head Teachers and Academy office staff.  Should you need further copies, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Dianne Mousley, Compliance Officer for Elevate Multi Academy Trust by email: d.mousley@elevatemat.org

Elevate Multi Academy Trust regularly review both statutory policies and non-statutory policies either annually, bi-annually or three yearly.  In addition to the annual review process, the Trust welcomes feedback from their Academies, therefore some policies may reviewed mid-year.  It is for this reason that Elevate Multi Academy Trust take the view that all Trust policies are live working documents and as such may be updated at any time.
