Pulham CE VC Primary School takes safeguarding very seriously and are keen to do
everything we can to support our pupils. We have recently become part of a jointly run
operation between Norfolk County Council, Norfolk Police and our school, it is called
Operation Encompass. Encompass has been set up to help schools to provide support to
children who have been present at incidents of domestic violence. We know that children
can be significantly physically or emotionally harmed when they are involved in, present or
witness to domestic violence.
The school will receive a confidential phone call from the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub
before 9am on the morning after any domestic violence incident where a child at our school
has been involved in, present or witness to domestic violence.
The school have designated Mrs Goddard, Mrs Gordon and Mrs Read as Key Adults. They
have received training from Norfolk County Council to allow them to use the information
that has been shared, in confidence, to make sure that the right support is available for
children and their families, who have been involved in or witnessed a domestic violence
We are keen to offer the best support possible to our pupils and we believe this is going to
be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
