Ofsted June 2021 published a review of sexual abuse in schools and colleges:
- nearly 90% of girls and 50% of boys said being sent explicit pictures or videos of things they did not want to see happens a lot, sometimes to them or their peers.
- Children and young people told the review that sexual harassment occurs so frequently that is has become ‘commonplace’. For example, 92% of girls and 74% of boys said sexist name calling happens a lot or sometimes to them or their peers.
- The frequency of these harmful sexual behaviours means that some children and young people consider them normal.
- Some girls told the study that they experienced unwanted touching in school corridor
