Child sexual abuse: residential schools

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) has published a literature review of research into child sexual abuse (CSA) in residential and non-residential schools. The literature review covers research from five key areas: pupils attending residential schools; standards for keeping children safe from sexual abuse in schools in England and Wales; the scale and nature of CSA in schools; factors that influence CSA in schools; examples of unsuccessful safeguarding measures and positive approaches adopted by schools.
