Teachers 'struggle to deal with classroom sexual abuse'
According to research carried out by BBC Radio 4 and the NASUWT, teachers say they do not feel equipped to deal with peer-on-peer sexual abuse because they have had no training.
This is a problem we have been tracking for a while, which is why our sister site TrainingSchoolz recently worked with specialists at Chameleon PDE to launch a series of related online training assignments for use in schools.
The training is specifically designed to help schools and teachers deal with this and the wider issues of sexual abuse, harassment, and misogyny.
It provides staff with time for reflection about how their school's safeguarding policy and procedures include sexual abuse, harassment and misogyny, and how these address the issues raised by the students who reported to the ‘Everyone’s Invited’ website in Spring 2021.
This training is structured into five assignments, each of which are issued separately, so schools can be flexible in how they deliver them to staff.
Assignment 1: Introduction: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
Assignment 2: Milly case study: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
Assignment 3: Kyle case study: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
Assignment 4: Curriculum: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
Assignment 5: Further advice: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
TrainingSchoolz provides an online dashboard for schools and MATs to monitor and evidence statutory training, policy compliance and vital communications.
The included training & policy library provides an extensive range of statutory training assignments, covering Safeguarding, E-safety, Keeping Children Safe In Education (KCSIE), Mental Health & Wellbeing and much more.
All of the assignments provided in the library are fully customisable to the school’s specific needs. In addition, schools can upload / create their own content to cover a diverse range of topics, such as Curriculum Development, Staff Induction, Staff Handbook & Risk Assessment etc.
