We are an ‘Operation Encompass’ setting. Which means we work in partnership with Staffordshire Police to support our families against Domestic Abuse. Please see the attachment below for further information.

We work with the NSPCC as part of the ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ programme. Our children take part in workshops, led by the NSPCC, to help children to:

*             understand abuse in all its forms and recognise the signs of abuse 

*             understand that abuse is never a child’s fault, and they have the right to be safe 

*             know how to get help, including our Childline service.
