Hundreds of teachers claim to have seen pupils sexually abuse or harass classmates in school

Hundreds of teachers say they regularly witness pupils sexual abuse and harass their classmates at schools in the UK. According to a new survey carried out by the BBC and teaching union NASUWT, almost a third of teachers said they had witnessed peer-on-peer sexual harassment or abuse and almost one in 10 said they saw it on a weekly basis.

More than 1,500 teachers responded to the survey, carried out for the Radio 4’s File on 4 programme, and more than half said they did not think adequate procedures were in place in their schools to deal with abuse.

It comes after schools and universities across the country have faced increasing pressure to deal with sexual abuse in schools.
