How can schools raise awareness of CSE?

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

Research indicates that young people having a knowledge of healthy relationships and consent is a protective factor and decreases vulnerability to sexual exploitation. Recent inquiries have also indicated that peer on peer child sexual exploitation is the most common form of CSE across the UK, and some forms of peer on peer abuse e.g. sharing indecent images of a child via smart phone technology and sexual bullying can occur on school premises. With this in mind, it is important that schools inform young people about these issues.
