Our school has a core Wellbeing Team which includes the support for our vulnerable children (incl. safeguarding), supporting inclusion and pupils with special educational needs and to support those pupils who are disadvantaged in absence from education, home circumstance or family income.

The Wellbeing Team manages our safeguarding work including the support of those children subject to child protection.  Their role is to provide timely intervention to ensure that children's outcomes, particularly in terms of achievement and safety are secured.

OPERATION ENCOMPASS

Letter to Parents

I am writing to inform you that our school participates in a Police-led initiative called Operation Encompass, a scheme which will ensure that we can 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 and young people in a way that means they feel safe, supported and listen to.

Each school has a member of staff called a key adult who is trained to liaise with the police, when required, whilst ensuring support is available to the child.

The initiative was launched county-wide at the beginning of 2015. It is active in all Warrington schools across the local authority and in a number of schools in the areas of Halton, Cheshire West & Chester and Cheshire East with success.  You can find out more about Operation Encompass via the following site: https://www.operationencompass.org/

If you would like to speak to someone further about the initiative, or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Brown.

We are committed to working in partnership with local relevant organisations to safeguard and protect children across Cheshire and provide the best possible care and support for our pupils.
