Parents should be aware the school would take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of it’s pupils/students.

In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to significant harm, ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to act on this and make any necessary referrals as detailed in our protocols.

Please find our Child Protection and Safeguarding protocol on our school policies page. The overarching NPCAT policy can be found in the NPCAT policies section of our website.

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass directly connects the police with schools to ensure support for children living with domestic abuse in their homes when there has been a police attended incident of Domestic Abuse. Rapid provision of support within the school environment means children are better safeguarded against the short-, medium- and long-term effects of domestic abuse.
