Sexual harassment in schools: A guide for teachers Are we doing enough to challenge sexist comments? Are we making gender based assumptions? As teachers, are we creating a safe classroom by asking tough questions? Sexual harassment and violence are rooted in rigid and binary gender norms. These norms cause under-representation of girls studying physics at A-level and boys taking up careers in nursing. These norms mean that girls get teased for playing sport, an allegedly “masculine” pursuit. These same norms feed into the idea that girls’ bodies are inherently sexual and enticing to boys and men, who cannot control their desires.

Case Studies

Kayleigh's Love Story - Kayleigh's Love Story is a film highlighting the last 13 days of the life of 15 year old Kayleigh Haywood. The Leicestershire schoolgirl was groomed online by Luke Harlow, a man she had never met, before being raped and murdered by his next door neighbour Stephen Beadman.

The film has been made to serve as a warning to children and adults of the dangers of grooming and sexual exploitation following Kayleigh's tragic death in November 2015.

Visit the Leicester Police for information on the dangers of speaking to people online, online grooming and to show your support for our CEASE (commitment to eradicate abuse and sexual exploitation) campaign.
