Safeguarding Policy 2020-2021
At St Joseph’s we are committed to keeping our children safe and are please to make known our involvement with Operation Encompass.
Until recently there were no procedures for reporting Domestic Abuse incidents to schools which means that our children are left without the support and nurture when they need it most. Operation Encompass has been created to address this so that by 9.10am on the next school day the school’s Key Adult will be informed that the child or young person has been involved, heard or witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.
At St Joseph’s the Key Adult is Mrs Gili-Ross ( Headteacher). Should you require any further information regarding Operation Encompass do not hesitate to contact Mrs Gili-Ross, Mrs Byrne or Mrs Gilifoyle.
