At Newby & Scalby Primary School, we take very seriously our responsibility to safeguard both children and adults.
The safety and welfare of our children is paramount throughout the school and our commitment to this is exemplified in the policies, procedures and processes that are followed.
The need for rigorous guidelines and procedures is important to ensure that this is done with understanding and clarity. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.

What to do if you are worried about a child
Operation Encompass is a Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.
The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.
Operation Encompass is a Trauma Informed and Trauma Sensitive charity. We acknowledge and understand the impact of Domestic Abuse as an Adverse Childhood Experience.
Operation Encompass mitigates against the damaged caused by exposure to Domestic Abuse and other ACE’s.
