About the Webinar

This webinar will help senior leaders, designated safeguarding leads and school staff responsible for safeguarding to better understand their statutory duties around peer-on-peer abuse.

The ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019’ statutory guidance states that all staff should be clear about their school’s policy around peer-on-peer abuse and that governing bodies and proprietors should ensure it includes:

  • Procedures to minimise the risk of peer-on-peer abuse and how allegations are recorded, investigated and dealt with.
  • Clear processes as to how victims, perpetrators and any other child affected by peer-on-peer abuse will be supported.
  • The different forms of peer-on-peer abuse such as sexual violence and harassment, physical abuse, sexting and initiation/hazing type violence and rituals.

In this webinar, Safeguarding expert Anna Dootson uses case study examples to help cover the core legislation and legal requirements that schools must adhere to in relation to peer-on-peer abuse.

Learning Outcomes
