Life Lessons for your school
‘Everyone’s Invited’ bought sexual harassment in schools to the attention of the public and media. It led to Ofsted’s report into Sexual Abuse In Schools and Colleges that concluded abuse is ‘widespread’ and needs to be addressed.
Whilst this work is not solely the responsibility of schools, schools have a huge opportunity to address this and change the current culture.
Life Lessons will partner with your school to support you every step of the way.
