OPERATION ENCOMPASS

All schools in Lancashire participate in a project, called Operation Encompass, which is run in partnership with Lancashire Police.

The project, which commenced in April 2019, aims to support children who are affected by domestic abuse.

Following a domestic abuse incident attended by Lancashire Police, at which children from our school were present, Lancashire Police will notify us early the next morning and prior to the start of the school day. This enables us to offer support or whatever is needed to any child arriving at school.

Each school has a member of staff (key adult) who is trained to liaise with the police, when required, whilst ensuring support is available to the child. The adults in our school are Mrs. Whittaker, Head teacher and Mrs Watson, Deputy Headteacher.

We are committed to providing the best possible care and support for all our pupils.  In the meantime, if you would like to speak to someone further about the project or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Brown via the school office on  01254 232046.

Staying safe online should also be a priority away from school too. Below are a range of links to the NSPCC's website, which are designed to provide you with help and advice, should you ever need it. The school's Online Safety Policy can also be viewed under the school policies tab.
