Foundation Protective Behaviours Training, as a tool to address Child Sexual Exploitation and Domestic Abuse in Northamptonshire Schools


This course is open to Head Teachers/ Deputy Head Teachers, DSLs or PSHE Co-ordinators in Northamptonshire Schools. (2 people from each school) The course will also accommodate PCSOs from your local area, to encourage community cohesion and sharing of good practice in the community.


This two day course is now available on a first come first served basis to schools who haven’t already completed their PBCSE training last academic year. Thanks to funding from Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner we are able to offer this at no charge to schools, in conjunction with Northamptonshire Educational Psychology Service and the Protective Behaviours Training Partnership. This includes the ‘Taking Care’ Resource Pack from Warwickshire for all primary schools to teach Protective Behaviours to all year groups from Year R to Year 6 and a selection of posters and leaflets.


On successful completion of this course, attendees will receive log-in details to access on-line resources to support the application of PBs.

The Foundation course is the pre-cursor to attending a 4 day Specialist Practitioner course. Both Foundation and Specialist Practitioner courses form part of the Protective Behaviours Train the Trainer Pathway. Each school will be given Powerpoint Presentations to share with the school community to raise awareness of Protective Behaviours and how it can be used to address issues including CSE and Domestic Abuse and to work with local police personnel. Full course details and booking is on https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/d/united-kingdom--northampton/pb-and-cse-awareness/?mode=search


Last year the courses were very well received, so book your places as soon as possible. Please ensure you book onto a course in your area, so you train with your local PCSOs. When courses are full please email jfardon@northamptonshire.gov.uk to go on a waiting list for later in 2017 if funding becomes available.
