IICSA Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Cambridge House, Knowl View and Rochdale Investigation Report

Part F: Other Institutions

1. The focus of this investigation was on Cambridge House and Knowl View School, since these were the institutions to which the vast majority of the evidence and the most serious allegations of institutional failures related. However, the scope of the investigation was wider than this and encompassed other institutions – schools as well as care homes – in the Rochdale area.

2. Paragraph 1.3 of the definition of scope provided that the Inquiry would investigate “whether … children residing at or attending other institutions (where their placement was arranged or provided by Rochdale Council) were also subject to sexual abuse”. Paragraph 2.1 provided that, where a sufficient evidential basis exists, the Inquiry would make findings on the nature and extent of sexual abuse at Cambridge House, Knowl View “and at other institutions children were attending or residing at during the relevant period”.

3. This short part of the report deals with the evidence obtained in the course of the investigation that related to other such institutions.
