13 year old boy rapes girl and dismisses her after being taught on sex in school



A 13-year-old boy raped a girl of the same age following a sex education class - before telling her: "You can go now."

School chiefs are investigating the teaching of sex in lessons after the girl was attacked by her fellow pupil immediately afterwards.

A court heard the boy, who cannot be named, led the girl to a secluded area of the school grounds where he pinned her down despite her protests and raped her.

The teenager admitted once charge of rape.

Dolgellau Youth Court, North Wales, heard the boy asked the 13-year-old girl if she wanted to 'try sex.'

The young girl repeatedly said "No", but the schoolboy held his classmate down and raped her.

The boy, now 15, was put on a 12-month referral order and must sign on the sex offenders list for 30 months.

The assault took place in a state secondary school in the county of Gwynedd.

Education officials said they are working with police and other agencies to find out what lessons can be learned in the teaching of sex education safely in schools.


A Gwynedd Council spokesperson said: "Safeguarding the welfare of the county's children is a key priority for us."

The sex attack came to light a year after the incident when an attentive school nurse realised the young girl appeared unhappy.

She asked if anything was worrying her and the teenage girl told her about the rape following her sex education class.

The boy is now in foster care and no longer lives in the area. He will have to register with police where he is living and where he travels for the next two-and-a-half years.

Katie Russell, from the rape survivor charity Rape Crisis England and Wales, said: "The fact this happened after a sex education class is something I am sure gives concern about the teaching of sex education in school.

"I would say it highlights the importance of teaching sex and relationships education in schools that focuses not just on the biology and mechanics of sex but about emotions and consent, respect and relationships."

Prosecutors said the boy initially said his victim had consented, but then made a full confession and said it happened when he just had his 13th birthday.

District Judge Andrew Shaw told the boy that under the law a girl could not consent to sex if she were under 16.

He added: "She was too young and you should not have done what you did.

"You have to tell the police where you live and where you are for the next two-and-a half years,"

The boy will have three meetings a week with the youth offending team for the first three months and once a week meetings for the remainder of the order.
