Share this scenario with your staff to test their:

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


  • 2 scenarios within each document - 1 aimed at primary schools and the other for secondary schools. Delete the scenario that doesn't apply to your phase
  • 2 versions of each document - 1 with answers for how staff should respond, and 1 without 

If you send the scenario to staff by email, make sure you use the version without the answers. Erase 'prejudice-based bullying' 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.
