This guidance outlines what schools and colleges should consider and the action they should take when concerns are raised regarding a range of issues, including harmful practices such as FGM.
The guidance for Schools document all contains the ‘schools charter on ending harmful practices’. Developed by the London Harmful Practices Working Group, it seems to encourage the delivery of high quality, safeguarding focused inputs on harmful practices across all schools and colleges. The charter outlines the key principles that all schools and colleges should follow when delivering lessons or awareness sessions to their pupils, and the procedures which should be followed if a disclosure is made.
This Toolkit has been designed to be used by all educational settings, but is not intended to replace existing policies or procedures.
