OUR DESIGNATED SAFEGUARDING LEAD IS MRS JANE MCFADYEN WHO IS THE HEADTEACHER.
CHILD PROTECTION CONCERNS SHOULD BE REFERRED TO MRS MCFADYEN IN THE FIRST INSTANCE AND MR STUART PICKUP - DEPUTY HEAD TEACHER - IF MRS MCFADYEN IS UNAVAILABLE.
Operation Encompass, which commenced in April 2015, aims to support children who are affected by domestic abuse. Witnessing domestic abuse is really distressing for a young person, who can often see the abuse, hear it from another room, see a parent’s injuries or distress afterwards or be physically hurt trying to stop the abuse.
Each school has a member of staff (key adult) who has been fully trained to liaise with the Police, when required, and will ensure that necessary support is made available to the child following the disclosure of a domestic abuse incident.
