Description

Girls being constantly sent nude images, sexist name-calling, harassment, rape, a climate of fear, an over-sexualised culture that has become the normality in schools across the country. 

That's the conclusion of Ofsted's recent report into sexual harassment, which revealed that for some children, incidents are so commonplace they see no point in reporting them. 

Our social affairs editor, Jackie Long, asks: how did we get here and why are our schools no longer safe spaces? 

Warning: This episode contains reference to sexual abuse and includes distressing testimony some listeners may find upsetting.
