New FGM factsheet

A new government factsheet  is now available about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).  The leaflet covers :

  • What FMG is
  • The health implications
  • The warning signs
  • What to do if you a re worried about someone at risk
  • How to report concers
  • and the support available for victims

The publication of the factsheet follows the Education Secretary, Michael Gove, recently sending guidance to every school in the country on keeping children safe from FMG. FMG is currently a safeguarding concern very much in focus and is now part of Ofsteds Inspecting safeguarding briefing and consequently is included within all our child protection training courses.
