  • 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.

The doll encourages them to add a contact on messaging service WhatsApp, and then hounds them with violent images and dares. It encourages them to self-harm and the ultimate post tells them to take their own lives.…

    School Closure update   Firstly, can I thank you all for your well wishes, support and understanding during this unfortunate incident.

We have a team onsite who are working hard to get the rooms dried and repaired as quickly as possible. All children will be able to go a school on Monday. On Monday Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year…
