Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

If you are concerned about a child in our school or community who may be at risk of FGM (Female genital mutilation) please contact the school directly or call Single Point of Access on 0118 9373641 or the police on 999.

The Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB), as well as Thames Valley Police (TVP), would like us to highlight to our parents the real danger of FGM which is more acute at this time of the year when summer holidays arrive. This is when young girls are most vulnerable to be taken away and FGM is done to them. 

There is also a support group called the Rose Centre which supports victims of FGM, please follow the link. The key message as we all know is that FGM is a criminal offence and if anyone hears or is aware that this practice is about to happen or has happened they must report it to the Police.
