The SHARP System

There are many reasons why young people decide not to talk about incidents – confrontational, face to face, lack of confidence, scared, peer pressure, kudos, scared in case someone sees them talking to or seen in the schools office but to name just a few.

As a result, the school in cooperation with West Midlands Police use a confidential reporting system which can be used for any incidents which occur within the school and local community.

The system is called S.H.A.R.P (School Help Advice Reporting Page) and provides the following benefits :-

1. Information gathering tool for incidents in school and local community.
2. Education tool for main types of behaviour which affect schools – Bullying, Health, Community Issues, Weapons and Hate Crime.
3. Powerful Communication Tool – where we can send the messages we want to give to the youth across the UK.
4. Measuring Tool – we can measure how successful the system is.

The S.H.A.R.P system has been designed as a number of web pages which are individually personalised to our school.

Any referrals can be submitted anonymously, are treated in the strictest confidence and are dealt with by our Assistant Headteacher for Pastoral Care, Mr Morris.
