  • Focus on a coherent place that make sense locally
    Involve a wide range of partners to work jointly and under common strategy (e.g. education, health, social care, police, civil society, local business)

We are an Operation Encompass School

Operation Encompass is a police and education early information safeguarding partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support to children experiencing domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass ensures that there is a simple telephone call or notification to a school’s trained Designated Safeguarding Lead /Officer (known as key Adult) prior to the start of the next school day after an incident of police attended domestic abuse where there are children related to either of the adult parties involved.

Information is shared with a school’s Key Adult (Designated Safeguarding Lead or Officer) prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident. This sharing of information enables appropriate support to be given, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.

We are an Operation Endeavour school.

Operation Endeavour is an innovative project in which schools and colleges in North Tyneside are participating, and which is run in partnership with North Tyneside Council and Northumbria Police.

Operation Endeavour aims to support children and young people who go missing from home. Children who go missing from home are at risk of significant harm and they may be vulnerable to sexual exploitation, violent crime, gang exploitation, or to drug and alcohol misuse.

As a result, following any report of a child going missing to the Police, the Police will contact Children’s Social Care who will then communicate relevant and necessary information to nominated school staff.

Each school has members of staff (key adults) who have been trained in liaising with the Police and Children’s Social Care when required and will ensure that the necessary support is made available to the child of young person following their return.
