The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) has published a report looking at child sexual abuse in schools in England and Wales. Analysis of 691 accounts of victims and survivors who were sexually abused in the context of schools – including residential, non-residential, state and independent schools between the 1940s and 2010s found that: the majority of perpetrators reported were male teachers or other educational staff who often manipulated and groomed children and young people and staff and parents in order to facilitate sexual abuse; 15% of participants reported sexual abuse perpetrated by peers or older children; and independent and special schools were disproportionately represented in participants’ accounts of sexual abuse in education settings.
