Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020

We are an Operation Encompass School.

Children who are affected by domestic abuse do not have to suffer in silence. Operation Encompass shares the right information with our school, so we understand what is affecting the child, to give support and make sure they feel safe and included in school. Making the next day better.
