As a Sandwell School we are part of Operation Encompass which is a Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership that supports children and young people exposed to Domestic Abuse. It aims to ensure Schools are notified in a timely manner of any Domestic Abuse incident where children are present or registered at the address.
If you or anyone you know is affected by domestic abuse you can seek help through the school or through Black Country Women’s Aid (Sandwell) who can be reached on 0121 553 0090 or http://www.sandwellwomensaid.co.uk.
