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.
