Operation Encompass

Our School has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run in partnership with Manchester Safeguarding Board and Greater Manchester Police.

The project, Operation Encompass, is designed to provide early reporting to schools on domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school, which might have an impact on a child attending school the following day.

Nominated members of our safeguarding team are 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 better equipped to support children and their families with safeguarding concerns.

We always endeavour to offer the best support possible to our pupils and believe that Operation Encompass is going to be both beneficial and supportive for our students and their families.

You can find more information on the Operation Encompass website  ( or, if you have any queries, please contact Mr Campbell at school.
