About the Webinar

Webinar Duration: 63 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide headteachers, managers, senior leaders, governors, teachers and practitioners with advice and practical guidance on recognising signs of the different types of child abuse in nursery-age children, and understanding what steps to take in response.

Given the hours spent caring for young children, nursery teachers and practitioners are well positioned to spot the signs of child abuse. This is, however, a complex process: the signs may not necessarily be obvious and can vary, depending on the type of abuse. Children may not be old enough to articulate their experiences or understand the concept of abuse, and unusual behaviours may actually be attributable to other causes.

In this webinar, Robin Watts, international safeguarding expert and education consultant who has worked with schools worldwide, explains some common signs that should trigger concern for the welfare of young children, and the steps that nursery staff should take in immediate response.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how to recognise the signs of different types of child abuse in nursery-age children and how to respond in order to keep young children safe.

  • Gaining insight into the concepts of safeguarding and child protection, and educators’ statutory duties to promote and protect children’s welfare.

  • Recognising what constitutes child abuse, and the various forms it can take, including physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect.

  • Being able to identify common signs of abuse in children of nursery age and distinguish these from behaviours attributable to other issues.

  • Appreciating how to respond to signs of child abuse in very young children to protect them from further risk of harm.
