                                                           Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a link that schools have with the police. If the police attend your house for domestic violence and the child is present, the police will inform school before 9am the next day. We will ring / speak to you and check that you are OK.

If you are experiencing domestic violence (this can be emotional, verbal or physical) talk to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads, we can help support you and signpost you to services that can help.

You can find out more about Operation Encompass below:

Attendance and Safeguarding

Attendance and Safeguarding:

If your child does not arrive at school we will follow the below 11-point plan

First-Day Calling Procedure (in line with Kirklees Safeguarding Board Guidance)

  1.  Class registers completed and saved
  2.  Late children checked against registers if recorded separately
  3.  Absence calls listened to/attendance emails checked
  4. First day text sent to first name on contact list within half an hour of school start time asking for response
  5.  If no response to text call first name on contact list within 45 minutes of school start time
  6. Ring down contact list until reply is received, ensuring where possible that someone from outside of the family home has been contacted
  7. If no reply send second text and email to first and second contacts on list
  8. Alert Head Teacher that this child is absent and no contact has been made within an hour of school start time
  9. Head Teacher to risk assess the current level of concern and consider whether circumstances warrant a home visit
  10. Home visit to be made following decision at 9, where possible by school staff or any other agency involved with the child: School Staff will do home visits by midmorning
  11. Contact Police to initiate a “safe and well” check if all other stages have been completed and there is still no contact regarding the absent child. This should be done using the 101 number. School will call the police as this is in line with Kirklees Safeguarding advice.
