This lesson has been written to raise awareness of the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and to inform young people of the facts and issues, and how and where to get help if they need to. In order to inform and facilitate the exploration of attitudes around FGM, it is important for young men as well as young women to take part in these lessons. The lesson is part of a school’s work to protect their young people from the risk of any form of abuse or exploitation and should be part of a comprehensive sex and relationship education (SRE) programme, within PSHE education.
