Commencing in April 2015, the project Operation Encompass is being run in partnership with both Gateshead Council and Northumbria Police. It aims to support children who are affected by Domestic Abuse. Following any domestic abuse incident being reported to Northumbria Police, specialist Police Officers will make contact with the school and communicate relevant and necessary information to nominated school staff. This will ensure that the school is made aware at the earliest possible opportunity and can subsequently provide support in a way that means the child feels safe.
Please use the link below to read the letter sent to parents, which gives more detail about the initiative.
