At Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane we are focused on keeping up to date with developments in safeguarding training/policy and as such all staff undergo safeguarding training, most recently in January 2017, with updates relating to Keeping Children Safe In Education. Our senior team has had specific training in Safer Recruitment. Through this training our staff are informed as to how to recognize and report abuse, such as;

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) comprises all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs. It is illegal in the UK and a form of child abuse with long-lasting harmful consequences. It is a statutory duty upon teachers along with regulated health and social care professionals in England and Wales, to report to the police where they discover (either through disclosure by the victim or visual evidence) that FGM appears to have been carried out on a girl under 18.

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse where children are sexually exploited for money, power or status. It can involve violent, humiliating and degrading sexual assaults. In some cases, young people are persuaded or forced into exchanging sexual activity for money, drugs, gifts, affection or status. Consent cannot be given, even where a child may believe they are voluntarily engaging in sexual activity with the person who is exploiting them

Sexting: Whilst professionals refer to the issue as ‘sexting’ there is no clear definition of ‘sexting’. Creating and sharing sexual photos and videos of under-18s is illegal and it a presents a range of risks which need careful management.

‘Honour-based’ violence (HBV) encompasses crimes which have been committed to protect or defend the honour of the family and/or the community, including Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), forced marriage, and practices such as breast ironing. All forms of so called HBV are abuse (regardless of the motivation) and should be handled and escalated as such.

Our Prevent Duty guidelines are set out in terms of four general themes: Risk assessment, working in partnership, staff training and IT policies. These themes are reviewed annually and changes made accordingly where necessary.
