Lack of training leaves teachers unable to deal with peer-on-peer sexual abuse.

Teachers 'struggle to deal with classroom sexual abuse'

SA Training BlogAccording to research carried out by BBC Radio 4 and the NASUWT, teachers say they do not feel equipped to deal with peer-on-peer sexual abuse because they have had no training.

This is a problem we have been tracking for a while, which is why our sister site TrainingSchoolz recently worked with specialists at Chameleon PDE to launch a series of related online training assignments for use in schools.

The training is specifically designed to help schools and teachers deal with this and the wider issues of sexual abuse, harassment, and misogyny.

It provides staff with time for reflection about how their school's safeguarding policy and procedures include sexual abuse, harassment and misogyny, and how these address the issues raised by the students who reported to the ‘Everyone’s Invited’ website in Spring 2021.

This training is structured into five assignments, each of which are issued separately, so schools can be flexible in how they deliver them to staff.

Assignment 1: Introduction: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
Assignment 2: Milly case study: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
Assignment 3: Kyle case study: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
Assignment 4: Curriculum: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment
Assignment 5: Further advice: Improving safeguarding around sexual abuse, misogyny & harassment

PSHE, Student Wellbeing and Covid

Brand new, PSHE and health and wellbeing materials from Chameleon PDE


ChameleonWe’ve heard about schools who are very concerned about the mental health of their pupils but, due to the current Covid crisis, are struggling to timetable enough PSHE to meet student need.

Our friends at Chameleon PDE have come up with a solution. They have been busy developing new PSHE / Health and wellbeing materials for secondary schools which include a range of activities that can be delivered in 10, 20, or 30-minute sections, ideal for tutor delivery or for restricted lesson times. If lessons are longer, activities can be combined, fitting with any lesson length.

One of the many benefits of using Chameleon resources are their PSHE / WELLBEING HOME LEARNING materials.

Chameleon Home LearningPupils who are at home due to Covid restrictions also don’t have to miss out on their PSHE / health and wellbeing lessons. Chameleon PDE’s Home Learning resources have been written carefully so that content is appropriate, leaving more the sensitive areas to be taught and discussed in school by teachers during contact time.

This can ensure students are receiving a full and potentially an enhanced programme, even though time in school may be restricted.

Chameleon have also produced a teaching pack with over 60 hours of teaching material specifically focussed on Covid-19 that can be used for personal development lessons in school.

You can sign up for a free account, download samples and find out more here

We very much hope that you will take a look at Chameleon PDE and find their offering both helpful and affordable in these challenging times.

We want every child to know that it’s good to talk about emotions, mental health and wellbeing. The week is all about empowering young people to speak-up and use their voice. With the help of our partners we have specially designed resources that explore topics such as emotional wellbeing, mental health, how they can use their voices for good and anti-bullying.
