Operation Encompass and Prevent

 

Moreton Morrell C of E Primary School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

 

Operation Encompass is a police and education early information sharing partnership enabling schools and early years settings to offer immediate support to children and young people experiencing domestic abuse. 

It directly connects the police services with schools and early years settings to secure better outcomes for vulnerable children, helping to safeguarded against the short, medium and long-term effects of domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass was initially set up as a charitable organisation in 2011.  Since inception it has facilitated effective interventions to many thousands of children who've experienced domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass aims to mitigate this harm by facilitating immediate support, making a child's day better and giving them a better tomorrow.

Moreton Morrell C of E Primary School  is a signatory of Operation Encompass, alongside a vast majority of Warwickshire Schools. Warwickshire County Council aims to have all maintained schools working with Operation Encompass by September 2019.

Please refer to our Safeguarding Policy- which can be found in the policy section to read how we actively promote the welfare and safety of all our pupils. 

Prevent is one of four work strands which make up the government‘s counter-terrorism strategy – CONTEST. The aim of CONTEST is to reduce the risk to the UK and its interests overseas from terrorism.

  • Pursue – focuses on detecting, investigating and disrupting terrorist threats to the UK and our interests overseas.
  • Protect – aims to reduce the vulnerability of the UK and UK interests overseas to terrorist attack. This includes aviation security for both cargo and passengers.
  • Prepare – aims to minimise the impact of any attack, manage any incidence of an ongoing attack and recover quickly and effectively
  • Prevent – aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism

 

As the preventative strand of CONTEST, Prevent will:-

  • Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat faced by the UK from those who promote it
  • Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
  • Work with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, the internet and health) where there are risks of radicalisation which need to be addressed

 

As part of Moreton Morrell C of E  Primary School’s ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties we are fully behind the government’s Prevent Strategy. Our Safeguarding Team attend regular training  and are responsible for ensuring that staff receive WRAP training sessions on what Prevent is about and how to deal with any issues they may see inside or outside school.
