Schools urged to be on FGM alert.

Schools urged to be on FGM alert.

Teachers are being urged to stay alert to signs of pupils at-risk of undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM) as the so-called “cutting season” approaches.        

The season arrives with the start of the summer holidays, when thousands of girls are at risk of being flown abroad to undergo the procedure.

The warning has been issued by the National FGM Centre and comes after the release of the latest FGM prevalence figures by NHS Digital.

The figures show 1,030 newly recorded cases of FGM in England between January and March 2018 – matching the 1,045 cases recorded in the last quarter of 2017.

In total, 1,745 women and girls were reported at NHS trusts and GP practices where FGM was identified or a procedure relating to FGM was undertaken.
