As part of our commitment to keeping children safe, Barrow U.R.C. Primary School is part of Operation Encompass - a unique Police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership, which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.
Being part of Encompass means our school will receive a notification from Lancashire Constabulary before the start of the next school day when a child or young person has been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident the previous day. The information is given in confidence to a Key Adult at school, and will enable us to provide the best possible support for the child. The Key Adults at our school are our Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs McArdle (Designated Safeguarding Lead) and Mrs Porter & Mrs Cox (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads).
If you have any questions or wish to know more about our involvement in Operation Encompass, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs McArdle on 01254 822338. More information on Operation Encompass can be found on the following link: https://www.operationencompass.org/
