Our College receives information from the police, informing our Designated Safeguarding Lead when there has been an incident of domestic abuse in a home where an Ivybridge Community College student lives.
We are not informed of the detail of the incident, only that it has occurred. This enables us to monitor and support the students(s) concerned.
If we have additional concerns we will discuss the need for further safeguarding actions with Social Care. This information will only be shared with other staff on a restricted need to know basis.
Where a multi-agency risk assessment meeting occurs, the College may be asked for information and appropriate College related information may be shared with the College after the meeting.
