The Department for Education (DfE) has published updated advice on sexual violence and sexual harassment between children in schools and colleges in England. The advice covers children of all ages, from primary through to secondary stage and into colleges and sets out what sexual violence and sexual harassment is, how to minimise the risk of it occurring and what to do when it does occur or is alleged to have occurred.

The advice comes into force on 1 September 2021, and replaces the 2018 version which should be used until then. NSPCC Learning has published a CASPAR briefing summarising key points in the updated guidance.
