Sexual misconduct in schools

Could you please disclose how many incidents of sexual misconduct whether that be harassment, inappropriate touching, assault, or sharing of explicit images of another pupil, were recorded at schools in your area.

Please disclose the total number of schools the figure applies to 

Please break down by type of school, secondary or primary, and the type of incident. Please also disclose the ages of the victims and perpetrators.

Please disclose the form of punishment or disciplinary action taken in each case

Please provide figures for 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, if possible. If that is beyond the scope, please refine the time frame to something more manageable.
