Operation Encompass

In conjunction with Cheshire Police, St. Stephen’s Catholic Primary School is involved in an initiative called Operation Encompass. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. Following such an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared.

Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate school staff (called Key Adults) are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.

At St. Stephen’s, our Key Adults are;

Mrs Georgiou – Deputy Headteacher & Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)

Mr Hatton – Headteacher & Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL)
