Safeguarding

The Safeguarding of our School Community is of the utmost importance. Please read our Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy for further information. 

Our staff, and those working in school on a voluntary basis, are recruited in line with Safer Recruitment Procedures. The school ensures that all appropriate checks are carried out on all staff and volunteers. Visitors to the school are asked to read our Safeguarding Leaflet which outlines our Safeguarding Procedures.

The school complies with the guidance detailed within the Department for Education’s Keeping Children Safe in Education document.

Our staff receive annual Safeguarding Training in addition to specific training including Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Training and Prevent Duty Training.

Operation Encompass

Our school is part of the Operation Encompass project which runs jointly between school and Redbridge Borough Metropolitan Police.

Operation Encompass is a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass is the process of the police reporting to schools before the start of the next  school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.

The information is given in strict confidence to the Designated Safeguarding Lead to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.

For more information, visit the Operation Encompass website.
