IICSA Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Cambridge House, Knowl View and Rochdale Investigation Report

Raymond Cullens

The Inquiry also received evidence about Raymond Cullens who records show was a teacher at Bullough Moor Primary School in Rochdale from 1985 to 1992. According to Gail Hopper, as a result of a complaint made in February 1992 that Cullens had sexually abused a pupil at a Rochdale school in 1984, a police and social work investigation began that indicated other children had been involved. Cullens was arrested a week later and admitted sexual offences against four children. In June 1992, Cullens was convicted of five offences of indecent assault and one of gross indecency, and sentenced to 30 months’ imprisonment.[1][2] Rochdale Council’s handling of this case throws into sharp relief its handling of the situation at Knowl View School.
