Our Academy has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run in partnership with Manchester Safeguarding Board and Greater Manchester Police.
The project, Operation Encompass, is designed to provide early reporting to schools on domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school, which might have an impact on a child attending school the following day.
A nominated member of staff (or Key Adult) will be trained to liaise with the police. At Whalley Range 11-18 High School our Key Adult is Sharon Allen (Senior CP Officer).
She will be able to use information that has been shared with her, in confidence, to ensure that the school is better equipped to support children and their families with safeguarding concerns.
We always endeavor to offer the best support possible to our pupils and believe that Operation Encompass is going to be both beneficial and supportive for our students and their families.
You can find more information on the Operation Encompass website or, if you have any queries, please contact our Key Adult via the Academy, or directly by phone (0161 861 9727) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
