No they did not tell us anything of the kind, just that they received an anonymous complaint from someone who rang the nspcc ( we believe our neighbor), and that they had to do an investigation, and were talking to my son at school. When asked how long, they just said three months.
no, nothing in writing either, just recorded the meetings without her knowing.
They first contacted us on the 23/01/14. We received a phone call stating that they tried to attend our place of residence, but as we were away they had not gained access. She said( social worker), that she had received a referral from the NSPCC, who received an anonymous call. Making particular allegations, we were not told what allegations. Achille ( my son was absent as he was away for boarding school exams) The social worker, said she wanted to see us in her office the day after and was going to speak to our son in school prior to meeting us the following day. We met on that Friday at 11:15 at her office. Subsequently she came to our flat 7 days after , to assess this.
No written papers, or telephone calls between this period ensued, I was merely told at the meeting what the allegations were, what I thought about them, and numerous other questions. When I asked, how long it would take, she simply said, 3 months.
