Newchurch Community Primary School participates in a Police-led initiative called Operation Encompass, a scheme which will ensure that we can we can better support any child where a domestic incident has been reported to Police from their home.
Following a domestic incident, the Police will make contact with the school via telephone and communicate relevant information to a nominated, fully-trained school staff. This will ensure that we are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe, supported and listen to. Each school has a member of staff called a key adult who is trained to liaise with the police, when required, whilst ensuring support is available to the child. The key adult at Newchurch is Mrs Jayne Narraway.
The initiative was launched county-wide at the beginning of 2015. It is active in all Warrington schools across the local authority and in a number of schools in the areas of Halton, Cheshire West & Chester and Cheshire East with success.
You can find out more about Operation Encompass via the following site: http://www.operationencompass.org/ If you would like to speak to someone further about the initiative, or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Narraway, the Headteacher .
We are committed to working in partnership with local relevant organisations to safeguard and protect children across Cheshire and provide the best possible care and support for our pupils.
