Harmful Sexual Behaviour

Lucie Welch has created another in the series of DSL Discussions resources, this time focussing on an issue which is regularly in the news about Harmful Sexual Behaviour, linking with issues of child on child abuse and intimate relationships abuse. There are tips on how to start discussions with staff on this tricky topic, some prompt questions to get staff thinking more deeply and also clarified what schools can do to support and educate children.

Leading Safeguarding Audit

We have created a detailed Safeguarding audit tool you can use yourselves within your setting to “see where you’re at” in terms of best practice.

It can be used by your DSL, DDSLs, SLT and governors/trustees to assess your answers to the following types of questions:

  • Are you confident your safeguarding policy and procedures are fully understood and enacted by all adults in your setting?
  • Do you know how effective your safeguarding practices really are?
  • What are your safeguarding strengths and what areas could be improved further? 

Please note, we also offer a Safeguarding Audit for settings who wish to pay for an independent expert to come in and assess your practice and provide a written report. Contact us to find out more.

The DSL Podcast

Please note that whilst all details were accurate at the time of recording, regular changes in national statutory guidance (in particular KCSIE) and local organisation mean that some references might be made to guidance and situations that have subsequently changed. The tone and ethos is still correct and very useful to those working in safeguarding.
