Music schools are under scrutiny in sex abuse inquirymain
It appears that specialist music schools have been singled out for attention in the Terms of Reference of the UK independent inquiry into child abuse, announced today. The inquiry will cover:
- Government departments, the Cabinet Office, Parliament and Ministers;
- Police, prosecuting authorities, schools including private and state-funded boarding and day schools, specialist education (such as music tuition), Local Authorities (including care homes and children’s services), health services, and prisons/secure estates;
- Churches and other religious denominations and organisations;
- Political Parties; and
- The Armed Services.
The focus should be warmly welcomed.
