Spotting Signs of Abuse and Neglect in Secondary

Description

Advice for secondary teachers on how to spot the signs of child abuse or neglect, to help protect the estimated 175,000 children in England who suffer each year.

Education Advisor at the NSPCC, John Stead, and Chair of the British Association for the Study and Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (BASPCAN), Jonathan Picken, provide a range of case studies of child abuse and neglect identified within secondary schools.

Pat Curran, a named person with a secondary school for child protection, outlines the key indicators that all school staff are trained to spot and refer on.

PE teacher Ross Towler and student support worker Yvette Hudson describe how they would react if a child made a disclosure relating to abuse or neglect.

Finally, Lead Officer for Child Protection at Education in Bradford, Jenni Whitehead, emphasises the importance of teachers recognising potential child protection issues.
