Preventing harmful sexual behaviour in education

Episode 25,   Feb 10, 2020, 09:20 AM

What is good practice for preventing harmful sexual behaviour? We explore how you can use preventative and proactive measures to protect young people from sexualised behaviour and manage incidents appropriately.

In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • delivering PSHE education programmes and relationships and sex education (RSE) 
  • providing the right support for young people in educational settings, the wider community or online 
  • what you can do to help staff in dealing with peer-on-peer sexualised behaviour and peer-on-peer abuse
  • how you can support parents and carers in creating safer environments for their children 
  • the importance of working collaboratively with external services such as the police or children’s services. 
This episode features:
  • Pat Branigan, the NSPCC’s Development and Impact Manager for Children’s Services and lead on harmful sexual behaviour
  • Antoinette Jackson, a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) at a Secondary Provision
  • Dave Jenkins, a Vice Principal and Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) at a secondary school
  • Katy Tomkinson, a qualified social worker for the NSPCC
