The school is part of a project called Operation Encompass that runs jointly between schools and Dorset Police.
Operation Encompass will notify schools when a child or young person has experienced any domestic abuse.
Operation Encompass will also ensure that senior safeguarding members of the school staff, Designated Safeguarding Leads (Mr Bright, Miss Roberts and Mrs Saunders) and Deputies known as a Key Adults, are trained to allow them to receive and use this information from the police. The trained staff, when using information which has been shared in confidence, will ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in a domestic abuse incident.
