Faith-based abuse - scenario

Share this scenario with your staff to test their:

  • Understanding of how to handle a safeguarding situation
  • Knowledge of your procedures

There are 2 versions - one with prompts for how staff should respond, and one without. The scenario is suitable for both primary and secondary schools.

If you send the scenario to staff by email, make sure you use the version without the answers. Erase 'faith-based abuse' from the file name before sending it, so staff don't see which safeguarding issue the scenario is about.

If you use the scenario at a staff briefing, make sure you give staff the version without the highlighted answer text.

Want to give staff more information on faith-based abuse? Share our factsheet with them.
