Domestic Abuse Help

This is a challenging time for all families but at the moment, tensions in some households will have risen and, as a result some homes will not be safe places.

If you need help, please contact Mrs Gill on head@ivybank.cheshire.sch.uk who is safeguarding lead at Ivy Bank.  If it is urgent or out of hours, phone the police.

 

A guide giving advice for parents and carers on keeping children safe from abuse or harm has been released by the government.  It supports types of abuse including domestic, sexual, online and mental health.  Here is the link..
