Your wellbeing is a top priority at QKA and we understand the pressure of Academy life can sometimes feel over whelming. We want to encourage you to talk to someone about your feelings, to help put things into perspective and to help relieve some of those pressures.

There are lots of people in school who can help if you have any questions or concerns related to life in school or life outside of school.

Everyone in school has access to their Tutor, their Student Support Officer and their Progress Leader. You can talk to them about any worries that you have. They can also help direct you to someone who may be able to help further. You might also want to speak with a class teacher or another trusted adult in school who might be able to spend some time with you.

Other people in school who could help are:

Mrs Roddis


Ms Roddis – her job is all about helping keep people safe. She is good to talk to if you’re worried about a situation in your life which means you might be at risk, or if you’re worried about a friend being at risk. She can speak to other professionals like social workers and police who also help keep people safe. Her office is D3 near the main reception, you can also leave a note in the post box on the wall.

Mrs Heard


Mrs Heard – her job is to help with any medical advice or assistance you might need. If you don’t feel well or need to take medication in school then she can help and support you. Mrs Heard can also support with any sexual health questions or concerns and she can help you access the right support. The medical room is next to the canteen.

Mrs Magnus


Mrs Magnus – her job is to co-ordinate the support that is available to you from outside agencies like youth workers and mentors. She can meet with families who might need some extra support. Her office is down the Head Teachers corridor.

PC Baker


PC Chris Baker – he is a Safer Schools Officer and his role is to help support staff and students if they have questions or concerns about our local community or with regards to keeping yourself and others safe. His office is in D5 (C/D block breakout area).


Staff in SEND – There are staff here who can help talk with you about any problems you might have with your learning. They can help if you’re struggling with reading, writing or general working in lessons.

Staff in EAL – These staff can help you with any problems you might have around learning English, getting used to having lessons in English or developing your current skills. They can help with translations and communication with your parents.

Sexual Harassment

What is Sexual Harassment?

Sometimes, people who harass and bully do it with sexual comments or actions. This is called sexual harassment or sexual bullying. People who harass or bully use cruel comments, gestures, threats, or actions. They try to insult, demean, exclude, shame, or hurt others.

Sexual harassment and bullying include things like these:

  • making sexual jokes, comments, or gestures
  • spreading sexual rumours (in person, by text, or social media)
  • posting sexual comments, pictures, or videos
  • taking or sending sexual pictures or videos
  • asking someone for naked pictures of themselves ("nudes")
  • asking for sex or offering to have sex
  • touching or grabbing someone in a sexual way


Sexual harassment and bullying can happen in person or online. But no matter where they happen, sexual harassment and bullying are not OK. There is no excuse for behaviours like these. And they are not the fault of the person who is being harassed or bullied.

If you or someone you know is going through this, tell a trusted adult.

‘All staff have a responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn’ – KCSIE


Staff at Queen Katharine Academy all have the same strong commitment to our students that we will not tolerate, not condone or ignore sexual harassment of any kind and as staff we will challenge all forms of sexual harassment.

This year, many of us will be relying on tech over the festive period for entertainment and, most importantly, to keep in touch with friends and family.

Here are a few of our resources that you can share with parents, carers and children and young people to help them have a safer online experience over the winter break.


Being social online this December: a parent's guide

Access to new tech over the winter period can provide new opportunities for children and young people but also present risks.

Our guide for parents looks at how they can support their child to be safer online this season by focusing on 3 key areas: viewing, sharing, chatting and friending.
