Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment in Schools & Colleges (March 2018)
As you will be aware the website 'Everyone's Invited' has drawn much publicity for the shocking testimonials from over 10,000 people describing sexual abuse by other young people. As a result, the government announced that they are launching a review into sexual abuse in schools.
At this moment in time there are no further details regarding the additional elements to the review and the guidance that is to be drawn up.
In the meantime, there is a NEW Dedicated NSPCC helpline 0800 136 663
Schools / colleges may wish to make staff, Governors and pupils aware of this.
The new helpline will provide both children and adults who are potential victims of sexual abuse in schools with the appropriate support and advice. This includes how to contact the police and report crimes if they wish. The helpline will also provide support to parents and professionals.
