Help and Advice for Students
If you are concerned about any problem, whether or not it’s related to school, you can always talk to a member of staff. We are a community and always support each other.
You might find the following links helpful, but please do remember one of the best ways to get help with anything in your life is to talk to someone at the school.
The SHARP system
The SHARP System is the academy's confidential help and advice reporting system for students. We all work together at Harris Girls' Academy East Dulwich to help with any problems students may have inside or outside of school - to help keep our academy a safe, friendly and fun place to be.
The SHARP System a confidential way to get support for yourself or a friend, or for someone you have seen suffering. Please visit the SHARP System website to find out more or to make a report.
In addition, UK Safer Internet Centre have created a tool for reporting harmful online content. You can find it at https://reportharmfulcontent.online/.
