Pupil abuse in special school secure rooms filmed on CCTV

Recommended Posts


An investigation has been launched into "organised abuse" at a special school in London after CCTV was discovered of pupils being physically assaulted and neglected, BBC News has learned.

The videos, found by staff, show pupils being mistreated in padded seclusion rooms between 2014 and 2017.

One parent said he didn't know the rooms existed until he collected his "distressed" autistic son from one.

The school said it was working with the police and supporting families.

Whitefield School in Walthamstow, north-east London, has over 300 pupils aged between three and 19, many of whom have severe or complex needs and are unable to communicate verbally.

In January 2017 the school was rated inadequate after an Ofsted inspection found a small number of pupils had been placed in secure rooms "for repeated and prolonged periods of time".

If I locked a kid in a room the Cops would go beserk, the Gov do it and I'll guarantee its swept under the carpet.
