This helpdesk query provides an overview of global standards and models to address violence including sexual exploitation, abuse and sexual harassment (SEAH) in schools. Keeping children safe while in education is crucial for children’s attendance, retention, and learning, but also their wider well-being. It is particularly important for girls’ access to education, especially during adolescence. A number of standards and models have therefore been developed by education stakeholders to try to address different forms of violence in the education sector. The query provides a summary of key standards and models and describes how they are relevant to safeguarding children in the education sector.
