Our Safeguarding Team

Ivybridge Community College is committed to the safeguarding of all its students, staff and visitors.  Safeguarding is of paramount importance and we have a moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all of our students, by providing a caring, positive, safe and exciting environment, whereby the personal, social , physical and moral development of the individual child is supported.

The College ensures that safeguarding legislation and guidance are adhered to and taken into account when developing and revisiting policies, procedures and associated arrangements.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Amy Pearce and Mr Matt Anniss.  You can contact our DSL on 01752 691000 or by email on  This email address is to be used term time only.  Please note that this email account will not be monitored out of College hours or over the school holidays.

It is a condition of employment that all staff are properly vetted and deemed suitable to work with and support children.  We also ensure that all staff are trained to an appropriate level dependent on their responsibilities.  We maintain an attitude that 'it could happen here' where safeguarding is concerned.

The College's commitment to safeguarding is paramount to the success of all students.  The College Governing Board, Senior Leadership and the Safeguarding Team will ensure that all policies and procedures are kept up to date and in line with the latest advice from the government.

We must inform parents and carers that there may be occasions where we have to make safeguarding referrals to external agencies without notifying parents.  In these circumstances, we assure you that we are acting in the best interests of the child's safety.
