Training objectives

We will be looking at:
• Definitions and case reviews
• Does being BME or having EAL mean that you are at increased risk?
• When to be worried
• Safeguarding in schools: Keeping Children Safe in Education
• Drawing out learning from Serious Case Reviews in more detail - risk factors for the following:
- Culture and faith; to include female genital mutilation (FGM), child sexual exploitation (CSE), trafficking and modern slavery, forced marriage, honour-based violence, child abuse linked to faith or belief, disability and Roma culture
- English as an additional language
- New arrivals/ refugees and asylum-seekers
• How EMAS can help schools:
- Use of the Bilingual Learning Assistants (BLAs)
- Getting a BLA in an emergency
