Operation Encompass

Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run jointly between all schools and day nurseries across Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland.

This new project, Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools and nurseries of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a child attending our school the following day. This information will be shared at the earliest opportunity between Monday to Thursday and, when an incident occurs on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact us the following Monday.
 
A nominated member of staff, known as our Nominated Person/Deputy Nominated Person for Child Protection, will be trained to liaise with the police. They will be able to use information that has been shared with them, in confidence, to ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families. Information will be shared where it is identified that a child or young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident.
 
Operation Encompass was introduced in Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall, in February 2011 and has proved very effective in providing appropriate support in a timely manner. This initiative has already been implemented in Hartlepool and is now being extended across Cleveland. If you would like some more details about how Operation Encompass operates and the benefits of it, you can click here to view imformation online.
 
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our children and we believe that this initiative is going to be extremely beneficial and supportive for all those involved.

We look forward to welcoming all pupils back into school from Monday 8th March.  Please return to your usual external classroom doors as before.

In order to continue to keep everyone safe, we require ALL PARENTS / CARERS to wear face coverings when on school site.  If you are not wearing a face covering you will be asked to wear one.  This is to ensure we work together to continue the journey out of lockdown to brighter times for everyone.
