 Peter Dunn Compensation Claims

Peter Dunn (now deceased) was a headteacher who abused a number of his pupils. On behalf of his victims, our specialist child abuse compensation solicitors are pursuing civil claims for compensation against Durham County Council. The claims relate to the abuse of primary school boys by Peter Dunn in the years from approximately 1955 to 1985 in the Peterlee area of Durham, including at:

  • Cotsford Junior School, Peterlee and
  • Acre Rigg Primary School, Peterlee

We know Peter Dunn may have taught at other schools in the county of Durham or across England. If you suffered abuse by Peter Dunn, we will still be able to help you pursue a claim for compensation, whether or not the abuse took place in Peterlee or outside Northeast England.

Even if the abuse took place a long time ago, or because the abuse was not reported, or because it was reported but you were not believed, then we can discuss your options with you.

We have an experienced team of child abuse compensation solicitors working with many victims of Peter Dunn who have already come forward. Our mission is to help all other survivors.

All of our solicitors will treat your enquiry with:

  • Complete confidentiality
  • Professionalism
  • Respect
  • Care
