Description

'Prevent' and 'FGM - Female Genital Mutilation'

This half-day event delivered in two parts, is designed to ensure that education staff receive the training specified by the Home Office in relation to the prevention of terrorism and then gain a clear understanding of female genital mutilation and the implications of this tricky topic for schools and other education settings.

Part 1 of the session:

The Prevent duty is the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 on specified authorities, in the exercise of their functions, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. This duty refers to governing bodies, school leaders and school staff in maintained schools (including nursery schools), non-maintained special schools, proprietors of independent schools (including academies and free schools), alternative provision academies and 16-19 academies.

The Home Office has specified the training that is needed for school staff and helps them to make good judgements about behaviour that might indicate the presence of radicalisation. This course is of particular interest to safeguarding leads.

Outcomes: Participants will have:

  • Learned how the Home Office is expecting all education staff to know in relation to the risk of terrorism

  • Explored how to respond appropriately to concerns about terrorism in the best interests of the welfare of children and young people


Part 2 of the session:

FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) is illegal in England and Wales under the FGM Act 2003. Section 5(b) of the Act introduces a mandatory report duty which requires teachers in England and Wales to report known cases which they identify in the course of their professional work to the police.

This mandatory requirement is in addition to any existing safeguarding responsibilities where there is an identified or known risk to a child. This event will focus on how teachers can understand the issues around FGM and how they must respond to this requirement in an appropriate manner.

Outcomes: Participants will have:

  • A better understanding of the background to female genital mutilation and its history

  • Explored the duty of care that all professionals have when FGM may be a concern

  • Learned about the most appropriate responses to concerns and how to make an appropriate referral


This course would be ideal for anyone who works in the Education sector, particularly Headteachers, Designated Leads and Senior Staff
