  • Young people spend a large proportion of their lives in education. Motorvation Training is uniquely placed to play a central role in ensuring that students are protected from harm

  • Motorvation's primary responsibility is to facilitate learning, and children are more likely to engage in the learning process and achieve their potential if they are safe and well

  • Children who feel supported, listened to and valued at home and in school will welcome the educational opportunities provided for them

  • Motorvation Training will cater for children of different backgrounds, religions, cultures and abilities.

Our ability to safeguard will be evident on three levels:

Universal Safeguarding – this is our aim to keep all students safe by creating safe environments. This includes excellent site safety, safer recruitment of staff, strong school rules and codes of conduct and good safety awareness taught across the curriculum.

Targeted Safeguarding – this is our aim to focus on groups of students whose personal, social or economic circumstances may result in an increased risk to their safety. For example looked after children, students with special educational needs, children subjected to racism etc.

Responsive Safeguarding –this is our aim to respond quickly and appropriately to situations where students may be or have suffered harm. This is our support through our strong child protection procedures.

Sexual Abuse in an Educational Setting

Harmful sexual behaviours

​It is normal for some children and young people (CYP) to display sexualised behaviour towards their peers as they develop. However, sexualised behaviour between peers that has become harmful or abusive is unacceptable and must be addressed.

Motorvation Training recognises that CYP are vulnerable to and capable of abusing their peers sexually.


We consider any allegation of child on child sexual abuse seriously and do not tolerate or pass off harmful sexual behaviour as ‘banter’, ‘just having a laugh’ or ‘part of growing up’. These allegations are managed in the same way as any other child protection concern and follow the same procedures, including seeking advice and support from other agencies as appropriate.

This policy is in line with the safeguarding requirements in Keeping Children Safe in Education (Department for Education (‘DfE’), 2023), which we must work to; Part 5 of the Keeping Children Safe in Education statutory guidance sets out how schools should manage reports of child-on-child sexual violence and harassment.

More information on how to the school deals with harmful sexual behaviours, bullying and behaviour can be found on the Policies and Documentation page.
