Drongan Primary: School part of domestic abuse awareness scheme

7th March, 2022 10:38 am

A PRIMARY school in East Ayrshire is to become part of a scheme to help children exposed to domestic abuse.

Drongan Primary School has become part of Trauma Informed Contact and Care (TICC), which will see the school notified if a child is exposed to such incidents.

The information will be shared with the head teacher, depute head teacher, or a child protection coordinator in order for them to better support the child.

Head teacher Mr Maddocks and depute head teacher Mr McFadzean have been selected as the school’s designated contacts.

A letter sent to parents from Mr Maddocks reads: “TICC is a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding and wellbeing partnership, which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

“Being part of TICC means that our school will receive a notification from Police Scotland before the start of the next school day when a child or young person in our school has been involved in or exposed to a domestic abuse incident in the previous 24 hours.

“This will enable support to be given dependent on the wellbeing needs and wishes of the child.”
