Event Summary

Ofsted’s recent report on sexual harassment and abuse in schools highlighted approximately 90%* of girls have experienced peer-on-peer sexual harassment. This can have lasting implications for victims on their school experiences and future relationships.

Schools across the country are playing an important role in the prevention of and response to sexual harassment. Join Westminster Insight’s Tackling Sexual Harassment in Schools Digital Conference to explore the latest guidance from Ofsted and DfE.

No matter where you are on the journey, you’ll receive support and practical guidance to help you to review and improve your response, and prioritise the actions that need to be taken going forward.

Incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence between children and young people may happen both inside and outside of school. How can your school help to dismantle the widespread normalisation of sexual harassment? We will discuss the tools and resources teachers need to provide an age-appropriate and effective healthy relationships curriculum to support student’s personal development.

Gain insight on how multi-agency partnership working can be improved to effectively safeguard students from sexual harassment. You will discover how to increase communication and collaboration across teachers, victim support, and local safeguarding partners.

Learn from student experiences of sexual harassment to ensure the student voice is incorporated in your school’s sexual harassment policy. Gain practical guidance on how to provide effective sexual harassment interventions in our afternoon workshop.
