Court Farm Primary School is part of a joint operation involving Birmingham Children's Trust, Birmingham City Council, and West Midlands Police. This is formally known as Operation Encompass.
Operation Encompass has been established to help schools provide support to children who have been present at, exposed to or involved in any domestic abuse incident.
We know that children can be significantly harmed, physically and/or emotionally, during these situations, and that it also can affect their learning and behaviour in school. Therefore, as part of the Operation Encompass procedure, and to help support a child and their family (if appropriate) the school will now be notified from West Midlands Police before 9am in the morning after a child or young person has been witness to, or involved in, or are in a household where there
has been any reported domestic abuse incident.
Here at Court Farm Primary School we have a dedicated and child-focussed Safeguarding Team. They are specially trained to effectively use the information the Police share, in confidence, and enable the school to provide the right support to any child and their family. We always try to offer the best support possible to our pupils and their families and are always here to help however we can.
