Student Support Sites

We want students to feel comfortable and confident in getting the support they need for themselves or others. Sometimes this is by reporting information anonymously, sometimes it is by getting the information themselves from other organisations on the web. 

Tell someone

  • The Sharp System The main way to anonymously report something in school.  The information is provided through an external organisation so that your identity remains anonymous if you’d prefer.
  • CEOP  A website to report sexual abuse and grooming online. Make a report directly to them if something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone you know in real life, or someone you have only ever met online. 
  • Fearless  Fearless is a service that allows you to pass on information about crime 100% anonymously. This means you don't have to give them any personal details.
  • CrimeStoppers They’re an independent charity that gives you the power to speak up to stop crime, 100% anonymously.
