This year we have been working with staff from Primary Schools in England.
Holy Trinity Pewley Down School, Guildford
We had a really productive session with the fantastic staff at HTPD school. The Flying Child team spent a couple of hours sharing experience and running a more practical, Red Flags carousel session, to support the annual safeguarding training inset run by Head Teacher Dr Clare Brunet.
The idea that you brought up several times – that it is far better to spend a few minutes reporting a concern that turns out to be nothing, than to sit on a concern which if reported could contribute to the protection of a child – will stay with me for a long time.Staff Participant
I am confident that as a result of your session, myself and the rest of the staff will be even more mindful of, and vigilant in watching out for red flags, and concerning behaviour in the future.Staff participant
The Project commissioned a video to showcase survivors’ memories of school, in-light of their own hidden abuse. We have made it readily available to view and share on multiple platforms, to get these important, but often silenced stories into the mainstream. You can find and subscribe to our YouTube channel and Vimeo page.
