The Reporting of Abuse : Time for Change.

All parents need to know that although some school deal very correctly and report any cases of abuse that may occur that:
" At present there is no legal requirement on anyone working with children in England ,Wales or Scotland, to report allegations or witnessed abuse of a child, including rape, to either the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) or the police."

This lack of mandatory reporting allows schools to "deal with" cases of abuse entirely within the school and by their own staff and has led to some well-documented cases of abuse continuing within the schools.
