  2. That support is available for them if they are worried about “honour” based violence, forced marriage or FGM.

  • All schools must embed the prevention of “honour” based violence, forced marriage and female genital mutilation into their safeguarding procedures, which must be monitored by Ofsted.
  • All school staff must be trained to understand and spot the signs of “honour” based violence, forced marriage and FGM and to know what to do if any student could be at risk.
  • Every student must be educated that they have the right not to face “honour” based violence, forced marriage or FGM and that support is available for them and for anyone who they are concerned may be at risk.

we need your help

The Right to Know campaign has teamed up with young people, who are often the most affected by “honour” based violence, to make sure that their voices are heard. They performed flash mobs and got public support for the campaign. We captured the action in this short film:

You can also get involved by tweeting Justine Greening, the Secretary of State for Education:

@Justine Greening make every school #FGM, #ForcedMarriage & #honourbasedviolence safe. #RightToKnow
