Teachers given lessons in how to tell pupils about cutting dangers
by Anna Davis
Teachers were today being trained how to speak to children about the "taboo" subject of female genital mutilation.
At a conference in Victoria, a lesson plan, which includes quizzes, videos and information cards, was launched to help teachers broach the subject in PSHE (personal, social, health and education) classes.
The charity Forward called the conference to try to help teachers to talk about FGM. It is estimated that 24,000 girls in Britain are at risk from the practice.
