Operation Encompass

In conjunction with Cheshire Police, Witton Church Walk CE Primary School is involved in a new initiative called Operation Encompass.  The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.  Following such an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared.  Operation Encompass aims to enusre that appropriate school staff (called Key Adults) are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.

At Witton Church Walk CE Primary School our Key Adult is Mrs Tracy Parr (Deputy Head teacher and Safeguarding Lead).

This ia a vaulable initiative that means we can continue to support and help children and families within our school community when they need it the most.

You can find our more by visiting www.operationencompass.org or by contacting our Key Adult.
