It doesn't sound as though they handled this matter well, does it ? I'd be very curious to know what sort of discussion they had with him, that suggested to him that he "knows far too much" ? If a child sits down and starts chatting about sexual behaviours, yes, that's rather suspicious. If he knows the correct adult names for body parts, eg, that suggests rather than he's been wellbrought up.
There is no quick fix, and we still don't know whether there is actually anything needing to be fixed. Don't panic and remain calm - a kid can be far more bothered by a panicky response and pressure to reveal things, than by most of what could have happened. Especially when its possible nothing happened.
People who work with kids try to be vigilant for possible abuse, but few have the right expertise, and some fire off unneeded alarms.
Best for him to see a child psychologist who can chat to him pleasantly, and use a number of careful techniques to see if there has been possible abuse.
As the abuse, if any, is quite likely to have occurred at school, I assume they are checking that their own house is entirely in order ?
