New Woodlands School is part of the ever growing network of education facilities which participates in Operation Encompass, a national initiative that helps to safeguard our children and young people who may have been exposed to domestic abuse.
If a child or young person has been present when a domestic abuse incident has occurred and the police have been called then the Metropolitan Police will notify the designated person in the school that an incident has occurred.
This will be completed as early as possible in the morning and allow the school to silently support the child or young person and if necessary their family. The information will remain strictly confidential and only those who need to know will be given the information that a domestically violent or abusive incident has occurred.
In New Woodlands School the Designated Safeguarding Lead is Helen Bushell, the Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Carlie Warner. If you have any questions about Operation Encompass or any other areas of safeguarding please contact the school to speak to them.
