Domestic Abuse 

If you, or someone you know is a victim of domestic abuse, there are organisations that will be able to support. Below are some of the national and local organisations.

Remember that the Safeguarding Team in school will be able to offer you some advice and guidance. Further information regarding Domestic Abuse can be found on the Safeguarding page (under Key Information) on this website.

School Support

School is able to offer support through:

  • Consultation with Social Care for advice and support.
  • Consultation with Esteem Designated Safeguarding Lead.
  • Referral to specialist services if appropriate.



Domestic Abuse Support for Families

Anyone forced to change their behaviour because they are frightened of their partner or ex-partner’s reaction is experiencing abuse.

Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of age, background, gender, religion, sexuality or ethnicity. 


Domestic abuse is never the fault of the person who is experiencing it.

Domestic abuse is a crime.

One way we can help to do this is by educating people on what to look for if you think you are in an abusive relationship. If you feel unsafe or recognise any of the types of behaviour below, then you may be experiencing domestic abuse.

Domestic Abuse Support for Young People

Domestic abuse is never okay or excusable, and everyone has the right to live a free from fear, harm and control. If your child is witnessing domestic abuse, it can have a huge effect on their mental health and wellbeing - both while it is happening and later in life. The most important thing you can do is find the right support to help you take the next step, so that you and your child can feel safe and get the help you need.
