Operation Encompass

Our school is involved in a Police-led initiative called Operation Encompass, a scheme which will ensure that we can better support any child where a domestic incident has been reported to police from their home.

Following a domestic incident, the police will make contact with the school via telephone and communicate relevant information to nominated, fully-trained school staff. This will ensure that we are made aware early enough to support children in a way that means they feel safe, supported and listened to. This information will be kept confidentially and in accordance with Child Protection and Safeguarding Policies.

Mrs Cartledge (Headteacher) is the school Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and Mrs Wignall (Family Wellbeing Lead) also deputy DSL are our school key adults who have been trained to liaise with the police, when required, whilst ensuring support is available to the child. We will endeavour to contact you before we speak with children to provide the most appropriate and timely support.
