Reporting Tips:

  • Be specific with details (dates, times, activities and names)
  • Have facts, not assumptions
  • Give your name and your student’s name to the police
  • Be prepared for a range of emotions for those involved. Students could feel angry and hurt or relieved and grateful if you make a complaint on their behalf
  • Also know reporting could potentially save someone’s life.
