Keeping Young People Safe

What Should I Do If I Don’t Feel Safe or I am Worried my Friend is Unsafe/At Risk?

There are lots of people you can talk to in school. You can even email us if you don’t want to talk in person. The best thing to do is tell someone, as this will be the best way to get help.

Domestic Abuse and Operation Encompass

Harrogate High School takes part in a joint project with North Yorkshire Police, called Operation Encompass. Many schools across the country take part in this project.

Operation Encompass is the reporting of police attended domestic abuse incidents to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, where there are children/young people in the home.

Operation Encompass ensures that a member of the school staff, the Designated Safeguarding Lead, known as the Key Adult (Mrs Greenwood, Deputy Headteacher), is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared in confidence, while 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.

If you want to know more or want to talk to someone about domestic abuse/help with domestic abuse, speak to one of the safeguarding team (see above/poster around school).
