Operation Encompass ​​​​​​​

Our school is part of Operation Encompass 

Operation Encompass is a national police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience domestic violence and abuse.This is in place in every police force in England and Wales. Children were recognised as victims of domestic abuse in their own right in the 2021 Domestic Abuse Act. Operation Encompass means that the police will share information with our school about all police attended domestic abuse incidents which involve any of our children prior to the start of the next school day.



Mission Statement

We will be uncompromisingly focused on ensuring every individual is successful.

1. Excellence – We will provide students with opportunities in which to excel, to empower them to make free choices as a foundation for the best possible future; with outcomes in line with or better than their peers nationally.

2. Equality – We will provide high quality teaching and learning, delivering a broad, knowledge rich curriculum, where high aspirations are the norm and success is celebrated, to all students regardless of their background, ethnicity, religion, gender, educational need.

3. Truth – We will pursue truth open-mindedly, seeking to help students to enquire, question and challenge, helping them to be well-rounded, resilient, confident, independent learners with a love for learning.

4. Respect – We will create a safe community that has at its core an understanding of deep respect for self, for others and for the environment; strong relationships are key.
