The response to peer-on-peer abuse cannot be seen as a standalone issue to be addressed. This webinar will support delegates to consider fundamental aspects that underpin a strong safeguarding culture and whole school approach. From underlying values and attitudes through to measuring the impact, delegates will leave with practical ideas to further inform their strategic and preventative response to peer-on-peer abuse in their setting.
