Safeguarding Policy

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is the notification to the Dedicated Safeguarding Leads, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident where the police have been called. 

We know that children can be significantly affected when this is the case and the information received will be used to make sure the right support is available for children throughout the school day.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Mr Bird who will be happy to discuss this further or visit
