Ofsted’s review mentioned sexual harassment became normalized

That review pushed education leaders to act that sexual harassment is appearing in their school, even though it looks like everything is alright.  

A review by Ofsted published that sexual harassment, sharing nude photos, and online sexual abuse is growing “normalized” among school children. Ofsted’s inspectors attended 32 state and private schools and had a conversation with over 900 young people.

Ofsted’s review mentioned sexual harassment became normalized

Ninety per cent of the girls and 50% of boys said that being sent undesired explicit pictures or videos appeared “a lot” or “sometimes”. Inspectors also found that boys sometimes obtained ‘nude’ girls and distributed them on social media. Sadly, the children also mentioned that sexist name-calling and sexual harassment became commonplace because it happens regularly.

Ofsted’s review based on the trusted report

That review pushed education leaders to act that sexual harassment is appearing in their school, even though it looks like everything is alright.

The review also reported that children often don’t see the point of reporting this shameless behaviour because it’s viewed as common action. However, girls discouraged that there wasn’t clearing instruction of what forms of tolerable behaviour. Even a female pupil added that it was not their capacity to teach boys.

Her Majesty’s chief inspector, Amanda Spielman, admitted that she shocked by the review. “It’s alarming that many children and young people, particularly girls, feel they have to receive sexual harassment as part of growing up.”

She said that this is a cultural issue because bad attitudes and behaviours becoming normalised. Schools and colleges can’t solve it alone. She also added that the government should look at online bullying and abuse, and the ease of access to pornography.

Government’s comment about Ofsted’s review

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said that Ofsted’s review has rightly highlighted. Then added that “there are wider societal characters at play, meaning schools and colleges cannot be anticipated to take these matters solo.”
