Dear parents and carers,
RE: Operation Encompass
Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run in partnership with Manchester Safeguarding Board and Greater Manchester Police.
The project, Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school but which might have an impact on a child attending school the following day. The information will be shared on school days during the school term. When incidents occur on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, the police will contact the relevant school the following Monday.
A nominated member of school staff known as a Key Adult, will be trained to liaise with the police. At Fairway Primary our Key Adult is Alison White. They will be able to use information that has been shared with them, in confidence, to ensure that the school is able to support children and their families. Information will be shared where it is identified that a child or younf person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident.
We always endeavour to offer the best support possible to our pupils and believe that Operation Encompass is going to be beneficial and supportive for all concerned children and families.
if you would like more information about this initiative, details can be viewed at www.operationencompass.org or you can contact the Headteacher, Alison White, via the school office.
Thank you for your continued support
Head teacher, Alison White
