Our school is part of part of a safeguarding service called Operation Encompass. Operation Encompass is a Police and Education early information sharing partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support for children and young people experiencing domestic abuse. Information is shared via a secure portal with our school’s trained Designated Safeguarding Leads (Mrs P Varaitch / Mrs T Ritchie / Mrs R Langford) prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident. This enables us to provide appropriate well-being support, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child and family.
