Helpline for people who have experienced sexual abuse in education settings launched

The Department for Education has commissioned the NSPCC to launch a new helpline called ‘Report Abuse in Education’. The helpline comes after numerous anonymised testimonials of sexual harassment and abuse in schools and colleges were shared to the Everyone’s Invited website in late March 2021.

Falmouth School supports the reporting of this information and recognise that creating a culture that fosters healthy relationships and challenges harassment and abuse is integral to moving our society forwards.  The right support for teachers, compulsory relationships and sex education all play a pivotal role in achieving this.  The issue goes beyond school and we all have a role to keeping children safe.

The newly launched helpline will provide support to:

•             children and young people who want to share current and non-recent experiences of sexual abuse and harassment

•             children and young people who want to talk about being involved in or witnessing any incidents

•             anyone who works or volunteers in a school setting and needs support and guidance

•             adults who have experienced non-recent abuse

•             parents and carers who are concerned about their own child or other children.

Young people and adults can contact Report Abuse in Education on 0800 136 663 or email help@nspcc.org.uk
