Keeping children safe 389x267.jpg

An accusation of child-on-child sexual violence or sexual harassment is one of the most difficult situations that school leaders can face today. According to the NSPCC, one in 20 children in the UK has been sexually abused and around a third of sexual abuse is committed by other children and young people.

It is therefore quite likely that during their career, a school leader may have to deal with cases of this nature. NAHT’s advice covers the statutory guidance and provides useful information to help school leaders plan for and respond to reports and cases of sexual violence or harassment.
