Inquiry into sexual harassment and sexual bullying in schools
Kidscape supports the Women and Equalities Committee's inquiry into sexual harassment and sexual bullying in schools.
We are greatly concerned about this issue and wonder if there is any correlation between the rise in teenagers accessing online pornography, the continued rise in sexting and this worrying report from BBC News of 5,500 sexual offences recorded in UK schools between 2011-14.
The Committee's call for evidence is supported by Kidscape as there is an urgent need to obtain an accurate picture of how safe our children are in school. We would urge all parties to report any such incidents immediately.
