Cochrane recently published a new global review of research that considers the effectiveness of child sexual abuse prevention programmes delivered in schools.

He found that children who had participated in such programmes were three times more likely to disclose sexual abuse than those who had not.

The report reiterates that the child is never responsible for abuse but that prevention programmes delivered in schools can support children to develop the knowledge and skills needed to help keep themselves safe from abuse.

The NSPCC have summarised the report, and provide resources for schools.
