Brockmoor Primary School has a legal and moral duty to keep its children safe, happy and learning. It is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people both within the school environment and the community. Because of our day-to-day contact with children and young people, education staff are particularly well placed to observe outward signs of abuse, changes in children’s behaviour or their failure to develop. We need, therefore to be alert to the possibility of abuse occurring, aware of the procedures to be followed if the school have suspicions and have the confidence to follow those procedures.
This policy applies to all staff, visitors, governors and volunteers working in the school.
Operation Encompass is a unique police and education early intervention and is an integral component in child safeguarding and protection. Operation Encompass will ensure that Mr Bond and Mrs Duffin (DSL’s) are trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence. Brockmoor Primary School will ensure that we are able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been experienced a domestic abuse incident.
Early Help is taking action early to provide support where problems are emerging for children, young people and their families. Early help support may be provided at any point. At Brockmoor primary we want to invest in our young people and families and so can support our families during the Early Help process. Getting support at the right time from the right place is vital and if you feel like you would like to discuss these options or gain more information please contact Mrs Duffin (DSL) at Brockmoor Primary School or your local children’s centre.
