Secondary Urban Debate League 2020 – Round 1 Results! What fantastic results from the Sydenham School teams.…

The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and the Metropolitan Police.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.  We know that children can be significantly physically or emotionally harmed when this is the case and the information received will be used to make sure the right support is available for children and their families.

Operation Encompass will ensure that two members of the school staff, known as the Designated Safeguarding Lead and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, are trained to allow them to liaise with the police. The Safeguarding Leads will use the information confidentially, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children or their families who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident. We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our students and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved. If you have any concerns or questions then please contact one of our school’s Safeguarding Leads (Ms Quartey or Ms Robinson) and we will be happy to discuss this further.
