Safeguarding Strategy - Encompass

17th Oct 2017

Dear Parent/Carer,

 

Re: Encompass

 

Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run in partnership with the Trafford Safeguarding Board and Greater Manchester Police. The project, Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school but which might have an impact on a child attending school the following day. This information will be shared on school days during the school term. When incidents occur on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact the relevant school the following Monday. A nominated member of school staff, known as a Key Adult, will be trained to liaise with the police. At insert school name our Key Adult is insert details. They will be able to use information that has been shared with them, in confidence, to ensure that the school is able to support children and their families. Information will be shared where it is identified that a child or young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident. We always endeavour to offer the best support possible to our pupils and believe that Trafford Encompass is going to be beneficial and supportive for all concerned children and families

 

Some information about Encompass is included in this letter but if you would like more information about this new initiative, full details of the policy can be found on Trafford Safeguarding Board’s website www.tscb.co.uk

 

Thank you for your continued support
