The School is really pleased to be working with Northumbria Police on the Operation Encompass – the Next Steps project.
The project aims to break the cycle of Domestic Abuse through education and support at an appropriate level for the children. It will help all children learn about friendships, relationships, emotions and rules so that they can live and work together safely.
The School will be working with a School Safeguarding Liaison Officer who will lead age appropriate sessions with the children and also be available in School at specified times so that parents, adults and children can talk to them about any issues that they may have around relationships and Domestic Abuse.
