Rape brushed under the carpet

    • Parent Story, Sexual violence

Daughter was raped by a boy attending a prestigious public school in West Sussex. School found out, but did not follow their safeguarding practices, and brushed it under carpet. When said boy transferred to sixth form college, their safeguarding process uncovered it. This triggered police response, and my daughter was pulled out of her class (in other school) to be interviewed- without me present. Daughter too traumatised to give statement- boy off Scot free.
