Lum Head Primary School, Gatley

Operation Encompass

Lum Head Primary School is an Operation Encompass school. 


Operation Encompass is a system of reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has experienced any form of domestic abuse. 


Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of school staff, (a Designated Safeguarding Lead), known as a key adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, whilst ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have experienced a domestic abuse incident.


Key Adults for Operation Encompass (Designated Safeguarding Leads) at Lum Head Primary School are Mr Phil Ryan and Mrs Cath Latham-Smith.


We want to offer the best support for all of our children and families and believe this is a good system for all involved.
