The regional CSE awareness campaign homepage, www.seeme-hearme.org.uk,
contains useful local contacts and resources, including locally produced short films and materials which can be used in classrooms.
The CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) website has an excellent searchable database of resources for use with different key stages on a range of safeguarding issues, including its free ‘Think U Know’ and Exploited resource packs aimed at supporting schools: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/teachers/resources/.
The NSPCC has useful information and resources on CSE, including a factsheet for schools.
Barnardo’s has produced an award winning, interactive app, “Wud U?” that educates young people about behaviours, which could increase their risk of being exploited. It can be used in groups to help engage young people in discussions on sensitive issues. The poster can be downloaded here for you to display or promote in your schools.
A number of West Midlands schools have signed up to The Sharp System (Student Help Advice Reporting Page System), which allows pupils to report any incidents that happen within their school or community anonymously. It hosts information for pupils on a wide range of subjects including bullying, health and community issues.
You and your colleagues will also be aware of the continuing intensity of the national focus around issues of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
The Preventing Violence against Vulnerable People Programme is continuing to develop across the West Midlands, with a particular focus on sharpening our response, across all agencies, to child sexual exploitation. If you would like to raise any points with the regional team they can be contacted on 0121 303 2550. Alternatively, you can also raise them through the Sandwell Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB). The SSCB web page details how to make a referral if there are concerns about a particular child.
