Harmful Sexual Behaviour (HSB)

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

Harmful sexual behaviour can include using sexually explicit words and phrases, inappropriate touching and using sexual violence or threats, alongside other sexual acts. Sexualised behaviour which is significantly more advanced than you would normally expect for a child of a particular age or which shows a lack of inhibition, could be a cause for concern.
