Abuse in Education
Staff members within schools are in a position of trust to protect the pupils under their care. Unfortunately this level of protection was not always given and Jordans represent many survivors of abuse and bullying that occurred within schools and colleges.
If the abuse takes place by a staff member in the course of his employment a court is likely to find the local authority or governors of the school to be responsible for that abuse. If you have been the victim of abuse within an educational establishment our specialist lawyers are here to listen to your experiences and provide advice on the legal options available and the prospects of obtaining compensation for the impact that the abuse has had on your life. Whilst compensation cannot change what has happened, it coud help with the cost of future treatment.
