Our school places significant emphasis on keeping our pupils safe.  Pupil safety is a key part of our school aims and vision. All adults in school are fully vetted to check they are safe to work with children and our staff receive regular safeguarding training to ensure they are up to date with the latest guidance and statutory requirements. Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy sets out the many ways in which all staff are vigilant to possible safeguarding concerns and how we work with a range of agencies, including Richmond and Kingston’s Single Point of Access (SPA) to ensure we fully meet our safeguarding duties.

For detailed information, please see our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy in the key policies section and the poster below for a summary of how we approach safeguarding at Bishop Perrin School.

Harmful Sexual Behaviours (HSB): Information from 'Stop Tt Now'

We take a zero-tolerance approach to Harmful Sexual Behaviours at Bishop Perrin School and use our school values and PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) curriculum to teach our children about treating others the way we would like to be treated ourselves, with respect, consent and developing healthy and positive relationships. Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy (see above) sets out how we teach and support our children to learn about HSB.


CEOP helps any child or young person under the age of 18 who is being pressured, forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity of any kind. This can be something that has taken place either online or in ‘the real world’, or both. The CEOP Safety Centre has clear information and advice on what can be reported to CEOP, the reporting process and what will happen if you do decide to make a report. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button below.
