Teachers are failing to raise issue of FGM with primary pupils
by Anna Davis
Only seven primary schools in the country are making pupils aware of female genital mutilation, the Evening Standard can reveal today.
Teachers fear they will "open a can of worms" if they broach the subject, according to the charity Forward.
Only six primary schools in Islington and one in Bristol are bucking the trend, the charity said, despite girls of primary school age being the most at risk of becoming victims.
