Operation Encompass

One of the principles of Operation Encompass is that all incidents of domestic abuse are shared with schools, not just those where an offence can be identified.

This is the early reporting to school when a child has been exposed to domestic violence or domestic abuse. School can then monitor the child and provide support if necessary.

Every school appoints a trained Key Adult – the Key Adult is the person who receives information about police attended Domestic Abuse incidents.

The Key Adult will be notified prior to the start of the next school day that the police have attended an incident of domestic abuse. This timely information sharing enables appropriate support to be provided for that child so that all interactions, from when the child first arrives at the school gates, are of a positive nature.

Green Button

The Green Button allows Woolden Hill – students, staff, or parents/carers – to contact, via email, the individual responsible for safeguarding at the school. You can use the Green Button to let us know if you concerned about things at home, a situation with a member of staff or something going on with students inside or outside school. For example, this may include social and emotional issues, bullying, or friendship and relationship problems. Please note that The Green Button is not monitored 24 hours a day and may not be checked during the school holidays. 

If you are need of support click The Green Button below and send the email. We are always happy to help our Woolden Hill Family with any given situation.


The Prevent Duty, published by the Government in June 2015, is a national initiative to safeguard children and young people against radicalisation.

At Woolden Hill Primary School, staff are fully aware of the importance of the Prevent Duty. They are aware of the procedures we have in place to identify children who may be vulnerable to radicalisation. These arrangements include:

Assessing the risk of radicalisation;
The development of an action plan;
Staff training to enable recognition of radicalisation and understanding of risk;
Working in partnership with other agencies;
Understanding referral routes and possible interventions – enabling staff to implement their duty effectively;
A member of staff designated as Prevent Lead who will oversee the school’s implementation of the Prevent duty.
The risk of radicalisation is seen as a safeguarding issue. Vulnerable children and young people may be targeted in the same way as other areas of risk such as on-line abuse and sexual exploitation.

The Prevent Duty is included in our safeguarding policy (see below).

The school’s Risk Assessment/Action Plan, assessing the risk of radicalisation are below, as are two other useful documents relating to the PREVENT Duty on schools.
