Share this factsheet to make sure your staff know:

  • What child sexual exploitation (CSE) is
  • Signs to look for in pupils 
  • What to do if they suspect a child is being sexually exploited
  • What to do if they think a child may be in danger

You could either use it as a basis for talking about the issue at a staff meeting or other training session, or send it round for staff to read themselves.
