Train staff on fabricated illness, a form of physical abuse. Included in this download is one fictional safeguarding scenario where concerns grow around a pupil's attendance and the pupil discloses their illness to staff - however, there are differences between what the pupil and parents are reporting to the school. The scenario is gender neutral and suitable for both primary and secondary settings.

Also included is a guided walkthrough for the DSL or safeguarding training lead which lets you check whether staff can spot the signs of fabricated illness and physical abuse as well as ensuring staff know how to respond, report and record effectively. It's ideal to use as a discussion point in a staff meeting or INSET. It can also be used in response to safeguarding trends or concerns in your setting to build staff understanding of keeping children safe.

Fully aligned to KCSIE 2024, this scenario is also available as part of the Safeguarding Training Pack - Spring Term.
