  • OPERATION ENCOMPASS

    20th Feb 2020

    Dear Parent/Carer,  Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between Education and West Midlands Police.   Operation Encompass is a police and Education safeguarding partnership that supports children and young people exposed to Domestic Abuse.
