In conjunction with Merseyside Police, Our Lady and St. Edward’s Catholic Primary School is involved in an initiative called Operation Encompass. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. Following such an incident, children can arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared. Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate school staff (called Key Adults) are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.
At Our Lady and St. Edward’s Catholic Primary School our Key Adults are Mrs Clare Sutton, Designated Safeguarding Lead and Mrs Debbie Smith, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
This is a valuable initiative that means we can continue to support and help children and families within our school community when they need it the most. You can find out more by visiting www.operationencompass.org or by contacting our Key Adults
