Child Protection: Teachers

Volume 684: debated on Tuesday 4 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many teachers have been (a) convicted, or (b) cautioned for child pornography or sexual abuse in (i) England, and (ii) Northern Ireland over the past five years.[HL6515]

The Department for Education and Skills does not record the numbers of teachers cautioned or convicted for child pornography or sexual abuse. The Home Office has data relating to the total number of individuals cautioned or convicted, though these are not broken down by profession.
