Investigations by BBC reporters into historical allegations of child abuse - held in files at the UK's National Archives - have uncovered the way a number of schools dealt with allegations of abuse.

Danesford Approved School is mentioned in these files.

In 1966, the school was the subject of a BBC 24 Hours programme, which looked at life inside the school. In this archive footage, headmaster Philip Williams describes the ethos of Danesford.
