Harmful sexual behaviour, sexual violence and harassment in special schools training
Tuesday 14th June 2022
9:30 am (registration from 9:15 am) to 3:30 pm – via Zoom
Presenter: Carolyn Eyre, Safeguarding Consultant
The 2021 version of DfE’s advice, ‘Sexual violence and sexual harassment between children in schools and colleges’ (DfE May 2018), is now in force and replaces the 2018 version. The advice has been updated in line with the revised statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education.
The advice sets out what sexual violence and sexual harassment is, how to minimise the risk of it occurring and what to do when it does occur or is alleged to have occurred.
This course will be relevant to:
- Proprietors of independent and Non-Maintained Special schools (including special academies, free schools and alternative provision academies);
- Headteachers, Principals and Senior Leadership Teams; and
- Designated Safeguarding Leads (and their deputies).
Please note, this course is aimed at schools who may be working with sexually harmful behaviours for the first time or who encounter them relatively rarely. This is not aimed at those schools who already provide specialist services for children and young people who display sexually harmful behaviours.
This course will cover:
- What SVSH and harmful sexual behaviour means in the context of children with disabilities and additional needs
- The statutory & non-statutory responsibilities of schools
- Recognition and referral to partner agencies
- Steps to prevention: what special schools need to put in place
- Where emerging sexual identity sits in relation to society’s expectations of learners with additional needs
As this is a virtual training event you will require audio/visual capability i.e. desktop with webcam plus headphones and a microphone or laptop/device with microphone and camera. Delegates will be required to have their camera on during the training.
Certificates will be emailed to participants following the completion of the training and receipt of a completed evaluation form. To receive your certificate you must be in attendance for the whole event.
