Girls asked for nudes by up to 11 boys a night, Ofsted finds

Peter Wanless, head of the NSPCC, said: “Crucially, Ofsted has listened extensively to children and that has helped expose what’s happening – this demonstrates that young people’s voices and experiences must shape policies and be central to the inspection process.

Some girls can be contacted by up to 11 boys a night asking for nude images, the schools watchdog for England says.

In an Ofsted survey, girls explained that if they blocked boys on social media “they just create multiple accounts to harass you”.

The report also found nine in 10 girls experienced sexist name-calling or were sent explicit photos or videos.

The watchdog is warning that sexual harassment has become “normalised” among school-age children.

Students often do not see the point of reporting abuse and many teachers underestimate the scale of these problems, Ofsted says.

Proper risk assessment is the key to identifying and responding to those children who are the most vulnerable.
