Brooklands College takes the safety of all students seriously and we do not tolerate any form of sexual abuse. Our aim is to support potential victims of sexual harassment and abuse, to educate and work in collaboration with all students. ensuring sexual harassment and abuse is not part of the college culture.
We would like to share the ‘Everyone’s Invited’ campaign which was built on the voices of brave survivors who shared their testimonies of their own experiences. The ‘Everyone’s Invited’ testimonial website highlights the issue of harmful sexual behaviour and harassment in schools, colleges and other settings. We must listen and respond to what the published accounts, and issues raised by the website are telling us, with the majority of the reports coming from girls and young women. It is vitally important that all students are able to thrive in environments that are free from harassment and abuse.
We encourage anyone who has been affected by these issues to tell someone they trust. They can also contact the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre, who will be able to provide support.
Brooklands College would also like to assure students, their families and the wider community that where we hear concerns, we will follow these issues up and ensure that appropriate action is taken.
