Developing contextual responses to the abuse and exploitation of young people


New Government advice: Sexual violence and sexual harassment between children in schools and colleges



We welcome the new advice by the Department for Education (DfE) on Sexual violence and sexual harassment between children in schools and colleges and we are particularly pleased to see that Contextual Safeguarding has remained in the guidance. We also look forward to the addition of a Child on child sexual violence and sexual harassment chapter to Keeping Children Safe in Education which will come into use in September 2018. In this blog Jenny Llyod (International Centre) reflects on these important steps and highlights resources we have developed to support schools respond to these issues. 

Only members of the Contextual Safeguarding Network may access the resources on this page.
