Beeston Primary School is part of a project that runs jointly between schools and West Yorkshire Police. It has been established to support children who are resident in households where there are incidents of domestic violence and abuse. The initiative has been designed to provide confidential notification to schools on any incidents of domestic violence and abuse which occur within a child’s household that might have an impact on a child whilst he or she is in school. Clearly this enables us to support a child who may come into school potential worries or emotional barriers to their learning.
This project ensures that members of the school staff are trained to use the information that has been shared in confidence and are able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children or their families. We work hard to offer the best possible support to our pupils and we believe this is beneficial for all those involved.
If you would like to speak to someone in school about domestic violence or wish to know more about our involvement in Operation Encompass, please contact Mrs Knowles Pastoral Leader, Mrs Wilkinson or Mrs Whitaker on the school number (option 1) or by emailing IR@beestonprimary.org
