Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) is statutory guidance from the Department for Education (DfE). It sets out the legal duties that govern all schools and colleges in England when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children under the age of 18.

We have a link below to Child Line, should parents or children wish to visit their website for some really useful information.
Operation Encompass is a national scheme that operates jointly between schools and all police forces.
Operation Encompass means that our school will be told, prior to the start of the next school day, when police have attended an incident of domestic abuse where there is a child or young person who attends our school who is related to any of those involved in the incident.
We have ensured that our Designated Safeguarding Lead known as a Key Adult and our Deputy Designated Safeguarding leads have been trained about Operation Encompass procedures. This allows us to use the information that has been confidentially shared with us by the police, to understand how a child may be impacted by domestic abuse and to then offer support to the child/ren in our care.
We are keen to offer the very best support possible to all our pupils and we believe that being part of Operation Encompass helps us to do this.
