Ysabella Mistula, a pupil at Blessed George Napier Catholic School, was visited by Superintendent Mark Johns after winning the contest and given a certificate.

The safeguarding group is made up of primary and secondary schools, locality and community support service teams, police and other partner agencies.

Its aim is to get schools to work collaboratively to identify and deliver suitable content on priorities such as child sexual exploitation across all schools at the same time.

The logo entries were judged by North Oxfordshire MP Victoria Prentis, Cllr Kieron Mallon and Supt Johns at Banbury police station and after much deliberation a winner and two runners up were selected.
