Safeguarding

Holy Trinity is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Safeguarding means:

 

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.
  • Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.

Operation Encompass

At Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School, we strive to provide a caring environment where everyone in our school community feels safe, confident, valued and respected. We participate in a police led initiative called Operation Encompass. This is a partnership between schools and the police that helps schools to better support any child where a domestic incident has been reported to police from their home.

 

Following a domestic incident, the police will make contact with the child’s school via a secure email (within 15 minutes) and will communicate relevant information to our fully trained safeguarding team. This will ensure that as a school, we are made aware early enough, to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe, supported and listened to. It will also provide an opportunity for school to offer support to the whole family. Our aim is to ensure that everyone can live and work together enabling all to reach their full potential - emotionally, socially and intellectually.

 

The initiative was launched force-wide at the beginning of 2015. It is active in all Merseyside schools. You can find out more about Operation Encompass via the following site:
