Childhood Sexual Abuse in British Schools. #childabuse

Over the 5-6 years that I have been blogging I have seen, heard and read
many shocking cases of abuse. What I think stuns me the most is those
cases where the perpetrator is caught but the events are hushed up and
the teacher is sent packing to another school. The perpetrator then
starts their little “games” again and more innocent lives are destroyed.
Why? To save the blushes of those in charge and to avoid a public
scandal..

The people who allow this to happen may as well be abusers themselves.
They have no interest in protecting children and care only about
themselves and their reputations.

I have seen this in all forms of schools, public, private, primary and secondary.

PERHAPS there is more awareness today and PERHAPS this does not happen anymore. There is no guarantee however.

What breaks me heart is hearing a survivor of such abuse state something
like “If I had spoken up then maybe other children would have been
spared” etc. Blaming yourself for not speaking up is exactly what
the perpetrator hopes for. They feel invincible because who would
believe a child over an adult..

I have also read cases where the powers that be have blamed the children for sexualising the adult!

If you have been affected by abuse in your school please speak out. Name
and shame those involved, the school and the local authority.

I am very interested in hearing from anyone who suffered abuse whilst in
the following schools during the late 60s through to the early 80s.

Bengeo Primary School – Hertfordshire
Longlands Primary School – Hertfordshire
King College Choir School – Cambridge
