This training programme provides the opportunity to explore practical ways to create an open and supportive environment and will also give time to explore local issues as well as an opportunity for discussion.

 

FGM is a criminal offence and an extremely harmful form of child abuse which Government are firmly committed to eradicating. Failing to protect a girl from FGM is an offence under the Serious Crime Act 2015.

 

A mandatory reporting duty began in October 2015 and requires teachers and regulated health and social care professionals to report known cases of FGM in under 18s to the police.

 

New statutory guidance will help to increase awareness of FGM and improve compliance with good practice in order to increase referrals and reports to the police and afford victims of this terrible abuse the greatest possible protection. Training to ensure all staff have the expertise they need to identify and report these problems as appropriate is vital.

 

Under the latest Ofsted common inspection framework, safeguarding will be central to every inspection. Inspectors will consider the extent to which leaders, governors and managers create a positive culture and ethos where safeguarding is an important part of everyday life in the setting, backed up by training at every level.

 

“Honour” or “izzat” is a word that describes the concept of a family’s prestige and reputation within its community. A person’s entire life can be governed by a code of behaviour or perceived behaviour, based on the need to maintain the “izzat” of the family at all times.

 

HBV is an extreme form of behaviour and control used by one or several members of the family, extended family and/or community. 

 

Similar abusive behaviours and beliefs can affect individuals in a diverse range of community groups (including those of faith, culture, disability, sexual orientation).

 

FGM is a form of child abuse and violence against women and girls, and therefore should be dealt with as part of existing child and adult protection structures, policies and procedures.

 

Schools have an important role in identifying girls at risk of undergoing FGM and those who may have undergone the procedure and require medical help.

 

This training programme provides the opportunity to explore practical ways to create an open and supportive environment and will also give time to explore local issues as well as an opportunity for discussion.
