Over the past few years, the impact of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) has hit the headlines with the Jay report which highlighted the abuse of 1400 young girls in Rotherham and the criminal convictions of a number of people (including celebrities) for their part in historic child abuse cases.
CSE is an important aspect of keeping children safe and as part of your safeguarding awareness, it is essential that you know the signs that a child or young person is being sexual exploited.
We are therefore delighted to announce the launch of our brand new resources covering the topic of CSE. The resources have been developed with the help of e-safety consultant, Tim Pinto and are designed to help staff and parents understand more about the issue of CSE, signs to look our for and what to do if they believe a child is becoming a victim of CSE.
CSE School Checklist: CSE is an important area for all schools to include as part of their safeguarding policy. This checklist is a self-review tool to support the school in ensuring that it has robust policies and procedures in place to deal with any risks associated with CSE.
CSE Checklist for Parents: It is vital that parents play a role in identifying if their child may be a victim of CSE. This checklist will help them become aware of some of the signs to look out for.
Staff Training This is an online training module for all school staff which will cover why CSE is an important part of our safeguarding duty, what the signs of CSE are, CSE and the use of technology, CSE case studies and practical strategies when working in school.
Existing members can access the resources via the E-safety Support Dashboard.
