  • The Sharp System

    The 'School Help Advice Reporting Page' (SHARP) allows young people to confidentially report incidents which occur within their school and local community. Pages are run by individual schools that have signed up to the scheme. This link will take you through to a list of all the London schools that are so far involved.
