The incident, which happened in 2010, involved a girl with special needs. Teachers allegedly convinced the girl to ‘play into the boy’s hands’ and agree to meet the pair in the school’s toilets.

Teachers failed to appear in the toilets when planned to catch the boy- who had a history of committing sexual assault- leaving the vulnerable girl open to attack.

The boy reportedly raped her in the school toilets.

A report following the incident claims that administrators failed to stop the attacker, but documents referring to the rape were shredded according to claims by the victim’s father.

The boy- who was also a special needs student- was transferred to another school where he reportedly continued to make inappropriate advances towards other students.

According to the National Women’s Law Centre, the victim withdrew from school activities and became depressed after the attack.

One teacher resigned following the incident, whilst other members of staff linked to the ‘botched plan’ stayed on in their positions.
