Peer on Peer Abuse

St Thomas More Catholic School is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our students so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Abuse of any kind is unacceptable at St Thomas More Catholic School. If abuse does occur, all students should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. If you would like to report an incident please either click on the link or email and someone will come and talk to you.

We recognise that peer on peer abuse can manifest itself in many ways such as:

  • Child Sexual Exploitation / Child Criminal Exploitation  
  • Bullying (including cyberbullying, prejudice-based and discriminatory bullying)
  • Physical abuse
  • Radicalisation
  • Abuse in intimate friendships / relationships
  • Sexual violence and sexual harassment
  • Gang associated and serious violence 
  • Initiation / hazing type violence and rituals
  • Consensual and non-consensual sharing of nudes and semi-nudes images and /or videos
  • Causing someone to engage in sexual activity without consent, such as forcing someone to strip, touch themselves sexually, or to engage in sexual activity with a third party
  • Upskirting (which is a criminal offence)
