Operation Encompass

Dear Parent / Carer,

I am writing to remind you that School will be taking part in a jointly run operation between Walsall Council, West Midlands Police and our School called Operation Encompass. This has been set-up to help schools to provide support to children who have been present at incidents of domestic abuse. We know that children can be traumatised when they are involved in, present or witness to domestic abuse and may be in need of emotional and practical support. Our School will receive a confidential communication from the Police Operation Encompass on the morning after any police notification or attended domestic abuse incident. School have Designated Safeguarding Leads who have received training to allow them to use the information that has been shared in confidence to make sure that the right support is offered at the right time, for our schools children, young people and families. We are keen to offer the best support possible to our pupils and we have adopted Operation Encompass as we believe this is extremely beneficial to meeting the needs of our pupils. If you have any concerns or questions, then please contact our Safeguarding team or myself and we will be happy to discuss this further. Further information about the project can be found on our school’s website and is available from the School office on request. Further information is also available at: www.operationencompass.org

Health and Relationship Curriculum

Please click the link below for further information:

Toast

 We will continue proving KS2 with toast (tuck) in a morning.

   

Due to social distancing and keeping bubbles safe, this will be on a rotation.

As a good will gesture to support families during the Covid-19 pandemic, this will be provided for free, and will be reviewed to ask for a small charge after Easter.

This rota may change as government guidance changes, so check this page daily.

Dinners

 We will continue serving hot dinners on a fortnightly rotation in order to keep our school community safe in their bubbles. This will be continually reviewed in line with changing government guidelines.

    Children will be served at their seat, rather than queuing.

The hot meal should be booked and paid for in advanced, at a cost of £2.10.

We will be serving pizza, chips, side salad and a selection of deserts, such as vegetarian jelly, cookies, fruit etc which will all be served on paper plates.

Sandwiches will still be available for those that do not like the hot meal option.

     

If it is not your child’s day for a hot dinner, they will still be provided with a packed lunch if they are entitled to free school meals or have paid for a packed lunch.
