Tes Safeguarding Awareness Week to help pupils feel safe
This May Safeguarding Awareness Week is an opportunity to explore what it means to feel safe, particularly in light of the recent reports of the rise of sexual harassment in schools.
Since March 2021, thousands of testimonies from children and young people of peer-on-peer sexual harassment and abuse have been posted on the ‘Everyone’s Invited’ website https://www.everyonesinvited.uk/. Many of these testimonies are linked to schools, colleges and universities.
Starting this week, Tes are supporting schools with a range of tools and resources, as well as live webinars led by safeguarding experts, to examine what it means to feel safe and how schools can put preventative measures in place to guard against sexual harassment and abuse. https://www.tes.com/for-schools/safeguarding-training?utm_campaign=DS85927-safeguarding-awareness-week&utm_medium=blog-cta-box&utm_source=tes-site
