Safeguarding

At Frederick Holmes School we take very seriously our responsibility to safeguard both children and adults.

This school operates a rigorous and robust recruitment process that gathers evidence about candidates’ suitability to work with children as well as their suitability for the post at all stages in the recruitment process. High levels of vigilance are maintained through rigorous monitoring post appointment.

The health, safety and welfare of our children are high profile and our commitment to this is embedded in everyday practice at Frederick Holmes School and is exemplified in our policies, procedures and processes, including those which address inappropriate behaviour.

The Governing body of Frederick Holmes School supports the ethos of safeguarding children and also protecting the adults within our school.

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.
