How do I identify Child Sexual Exploitation?

going missing for periods of time or regularly returning home late
regularly missing school or not taking part in education
appearing with unexplained gifts or new possessions
being vulnerable to flattery
having older boyfriends or girlfriends
changes in behaviour, being secretive or aggressive
mood swings or changes in emotional wellbeing
drug and alcohol misuse
displaying inappropriate sexualised behaviour.
What do I do if I have any concerns?
If you are concerned about anyone presenting any of the above signs, please speak to the Designated Safeguard Lead immediately, or the Principal.
