Peer on Peer Abuse Letter to Parents/Carers

6th June 2022

Dear Parents/Carers,


You may have seen recent national headlines regarding safeguarding of students in schools, particularly with regards to sexual harassment including Peer on Peer abuse. At Helston Community College, we have an extensive set of procedures and support strategies for the safeguarding of our students.  However, we are always looking to develop this further.


Students will have an awareness assembly this week and will have some follow up sessions in tutor and PSHE lessons.


As part of this awareness week we have attached some information which we think may be of use to parents and carers, in supporting young people. Please find attached a poster which details information about Peer-on-Peer abuse and where to get help and support.


We have also had a video made by The School of Sexuality Education, an organisation which delivers awareness training on Relationships and Sex Education to staff and students.


The video can be found by using the link below:




The government have announced a dedicated NSPCC helpline for any children who may have concerns about sexual abuse or harassment: 0800 136 663.


We continue to encourage all students and parents/carers to report any concerns they may have to the Helston Community College Safeguarding team.


Thank you for your continued support in keeping the students at Helston Community College safe.


Kind regards

Mrs M Mugford

Assistant Headteacher
