The Safer Schools Campaign, made up of more than 150 families that have lost children to suicide or had them seriously harmed, due to bullying, physical and sexual violence in schools, is led by former teacher Jason Barnett.

For a number of years, the campaign has been calling on Government and all parties, for an inquiry into a number of associated failings and an alleged cover up of the issues by MPs, knowing an inquiry would help ensure the safety of millions of children in schools across the UK.

The High Court assessing allegations of a cover-up, accepted the alleged failure of any MP to ever investigate, revealed “tremendous incompetence”. The scandal has directly involved every Prime Minister from 2016 to the incumbent, Keir Starmer.

The failures have led to concerns expressed by the European Commission’s Head of Human rights, High Court and Court of Appeal Judges, a pending application to the ECHR, ongoing calls for all those who have failed to resign and ultimately, most significantly, a concession from the Cabinet Office just 2 days before the 2024 General Election, that some form of investigation/inquiry was now necessary.

Through this site, as the Media inexplicably refuse to report on what has happened, you can follow our continuing journey to achieve an inquiry and to ensure that school becomes a safe place for every child to be.

The Road to a Public Inquiry

The campaign story behind the call for a public inquiry. (Interview June 2022)

Since this interview, the campaign has been involved in Court proceedings against the then Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in relation to the call, which resulted in a now outstanding application to the ECHR and led to a call for his resignation, just over a month before the 2024 General Election was called.

Letter to the Prime Minister to Resign

See a copy of the Letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to resign, in response to High Court and Court of Appeal findings, that evidence he deliberately failed to act to ensure any investigation of harm, deaths and suicides of children, due to bullying and violence in UK schools and an alleged cover up of failings related to the issues by Government Ministers.

NB: This letter was sent to both 10 Downing Street and the Cabinet Office. The letter was eventually responded to 3 months after being sent, just 2 days before the General Election.

Campaign Lead stands against Rishi Sunak in General Election

On the 04/07/2024, Campaign Lead Jason Barnett, stood onstage as a candidate against Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in the 2024 General Election. This after the Cabinet office finally responded to the resignation letter, which had been sent to the PM on 04/04/2024. The Cabinet Office having chosen to respond 3 months later and just 2 days before the General Election.

The Cabinet Office stated they were unable to answer the questions raised as a result of Court proceedings. These questions included concerns over the deaths of children in UK schools and whether or not the Prime Minister and other ministers and officials, may have deliberately covered up Government failings related to the issues. The Cabinet Office confirmed that the outstanding questions therefore, would need to be investigated by the “next Government”.
