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. Tierney (Head teacher) and Jade (Family Support Worker).
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. Tierney via the school office on 01772 743531.
