Safeguarding Policy

As a school we have a very robust and stringent safeguarding policy. All teachers log any safeguarding concerns on MyConcern which lets all safeguarding leads in the school to view the concern and keeps an online paper trail. Anything that is more serious is instantly brought to the attention of the Designated Child Protection Lead.

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a unique Police and Education early intervention and safeguarding partnership, ensures that a child/ young person’s school/ college is informed, prior to the start of the next school day, that there has been a domestic abuse, vulnerable child or missing incident to which the child or young person has been exposed, and which might then have an impact on them in school/ college the following day. Each school/ college is informed of all such incidents, not just those where an offence can be identified or those which are graded as high risk. The partnership recognises that all domestic abuse, vulnerable child and missing incidents can be harmful to children and young people. Please see the letter attached to find more information.
