Safeguarding

Broadacre Primary School takes seriously its responsibility to safeguard all children and adults and have rigorous procedures in place to do so.

Our priority is to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We know that children thrive better and are able to reach their full potential when we all work closely together.

Child Protection is a crucial part of school life. All staff receive regular training on how to keep children safe. Every member of the school community has a responsibility to keep all children safe.

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a police and education early information sharing partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support for children and young people experiencing domestic abuse. Information is shared by the police with a school’s trained Key Adult (DSL) prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident thus enabling appropriate support to be given, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.

Children experiencing domestic abuse are negatively impacted by this exposure; domestic abuse has been identified as an Adverse Childhood Experience and can lead to emotional, physical and psychological harm. Operation Encompass aims to mitigate this harm by enabling immediate support, making a child’s day better and giving them a better tomorrow.

Operation Encompass believes that children are victims of domestic abuse in their own right and should be acknowledged as such.
