Time: - | Venue:

I am reaching out to request your support in an important initiative aimed at improving the safety of women and girls within our community. I believe that your input and engagement with pupils can contribute significantly to this important agenda.

Could I request that your staff conduct a consultation with your Year 5 and 6 pupils, during a PHSE session, on the topic of women and girls' safety. The consultation will involve discussing pupil perspectives, experiences, and suggestions regarding safety concerns, and seeking their feedback on potential measures to enhance safety – I have included the questions below, for your information.

The involvement of your pupils in this process, will not only enrich the quality of insights but also help empower your pupils to actively participate in creating a safer environment for all.

I would really appreciate your support and kindly request that you share your feedback with me via email, once the consultation is complete.

The deadline for all feedback is the 20th October at 4.00pm.

Many thanks in advance for your support and please do let me know if you have any further questions.
