Hello Alla my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You want the school to tell you who made the complaint?
I assume the school were acting on the information received?
Ok. You should write to the school and demand an apology. Its disgraceful they are acting on information received by nosey people.
If you do not get one and assuming its locally funded then you should complain to the Council. They can investigate the complaint and report back to you.
If you are not satisfied about that then you can complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman. They offer a free, independent service at: www.lgo.org.uk
Finally you could issue proceedings and demand compensation for the distress you have suffered.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
ok - make sure you put everything in writing.Does that clarify?
Sure. If this answers your question could I invite you to rate my answer, 5 stars the happy face before you go today, otherwise the site doesn’t pay me for the time spent with you. Thanks in advance!

i am sorry but the school actually had no choice but to report the matter.
Since the death of Victoria Climbie the rules on Safeguarding and sharing information have become very rigidly imposed.
A report (even a malicious one) such as this one which raised Safeguarding issues HAS to be reported to Social Services - even if the school are relatively certain that the report is indeed malicious.
If all the School did was pass the information on to the Social Services then they have acted appropriately and have nothing to apologise for so complaining will achieve nothing.
I am sorry.
Since you were not asked what Social Services did I cannot comment on what action they did or did not take
