Hate crime is the term used to describe an incident or crime against someone based on a part of their identity. There are five categories of ‘identity’ when a person is targeted because of a hostility or prejudice towards their:

·         -disability

·         -race or ethnicity

·        - religion or belief (which includes non-belief)

·        - sexual orientation

·        - gender identity

Hate crime can be any criminal or non-criminal act such as graffiti, vandalism to a property, name calling, assault or online abuse using social media.

Experiencing hate crime can be a particularly frightening experience as you've been targeted because of who you are, or who or what your attacker thinks you are. Unlike non-identity related offences, the attack is very personal and specifically targeted. Reporting an incident of hate will ensure we as a school are proactive and offer you support and help.
