What's included in this bundle?

Created from content in KCSIE 2024, this helpful bundle contains four resources that work together to create a full training package about safeguarding and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). 

1. Staff Training Presentation - Female Genital Mutilation: A ready-to-deliver 24-slide PowerPoint presentation that outlines the signs and indicators of FGM, followed by slides that allow staff to consider and discuss what puts pupils at greater risk, other factors to be aware of and what actions they should take. The presentation has built in discussion questions and finishes with a scenario and quiz to check staff understanding about FGM.

2. Scenarios - FGM (Pre-Incident) / FGM (Post-Incident): Two editable scenarios that outlines a fictional situations about FGM. It also includes full commentary and guided considerations for the DSL or staff member leading the child protection training. Use it to gauge how effectively staff can identify the signs of abuse as well as how they'd respond in a real-life context, including further actions they'd take. The post-incident scenario also helps staff understand their statutory duties to report incidents of FGM to the police.

3. Quiz and Discussion - Female Genital Mutilation: There are five challenging multiple choice quiz questions that test your staff members' understanding of FGM, plus a discussion prompt that can be used to kickstart your training session or as a follow-up question a few weeks later.

4. Safeguarding Snapshot - Female Gential Mutilation: This one-page, one-minute guide is perfect for following up the session by using as a training handout, displaying in your staff-only spaces or sending as part of a safeguarding e-bulletin.  

The pack is purposefully designed to be flexible to suit your busy school. You could deliver the training in one slot by utilising the presentation, scenario, quiz and snapshot together. Alternatively, deliver the initial CPD by using the presentation, then use the scenarios and quiz questions in later staff meetings or future safeguarding training sessions, with the snapshot used as a reminder of the training content. 

However you choose to use this bundle, it'll enhance your in-house safeguarding training and allow you and your team to continue working together to keep your pupils safe from harm. 

Please note the following disclaimer attached to this resource bundle: These resources address potentially sensitive and/or distressing subjects and are intended to be used for training purposes only. They may also contain strong language as well as terms, themes and content that depict child abuse, neglect and exploitation. All of this could elicit emotional responses and be triggering for staff using them. You must fully read the training contents before use and it is your duty to carefully assess their appropriateness based on your staff and your context. If you deem each one to be suitable, you must ensure that adequate support is accessible for anyone who may be impacted by the content.

Who will find this resource useful?

This pack is ideal for a designated safeguarding lead (DSL), deputy DSL or anyone else in a school who's responsible for delivering safeguarding and child protection training. Use as part of your existing safeguarding training offer or when you've identified a staff CPD need. It's also helpful to use in small group sessions where staff might need more direct input, such as when training teaching assistants, lunch-time supervisors, breakfast- and after-school club staff and other members of support staff. 

What questions does this pack have the answers to?

This pack will support you to upskill your staff members' knowledge about the safeguarding issue of female genital mutilation (FGM), including the statutory duty placed upon teachers to report suspected FGM to the police.

What else can help me?

For a safeguarding training offer that covers multiple child protection issues and is designed to cover a full term's worth of training, take a look at our termly safeguarding training packs. Each one contains scenarios, quick quizzes, safeguarding snapshots and tailored training timetables. They're designed to complement each other and between them, cover Part 1 and Annex B of KCSIE 2024. This allows you to enhance your current safeguarding training offer and drip-feed training across the year, rather than attempting to cover it all in one session during an inset day.
