Sexual Abuse in Schools

Alison Gaitonde

The frequency of both allegations and overt sexual abuse within schools could not be established because no records are kept apart from the Department of Education and Science who hold figures of prosecuted cases. In contrast, the daily press suggests sexual abuse in schools is frequent. Research of paedophiles indicates their preference for work in schools.

Clinical cases are described illustrating different types of sexual relationship and group processes within a school following an allegation. The difficulty of establishing the truth is discussed. It is suggested that children may not be properly protected at present.
