Useful Guidance for Parents and Carers:
The Department for Education has commissioned the NSPCC to establish a dedicated independent helpline for people
who have experienced sexual abuse in an educational setting.
The helpline went live on 1 April, and provides both children and adults, who have experienced sexual abuse in schools, with support and advice, including onward action such as contacting the police if they wish to. The helpline also provides support for parents and professionals. Anyone who gets in touch through this dedicated helpline will also be signposted to other relevant support services available, including Childline, which provides ongoing support and counselling to children and young people.
The dedicated and confidential NSPCC helpline, Report Abuse in Education, can be reached on
0800 136 663 or by email at email@example.com.
