In conjunction with Lancashire Police, Hillside Community Primary School is involved in a national initiative called “Operation Encompass”. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.
Following an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared. Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate school staff are made aware early enough to help and support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.
This is a valuable initiative that means we can help and support children and their families within our school when they need us most.
You can find out more information by visiting the Operation Encompass website or by contacting Mrs Williams or Mrs Addy at school.
The Liberty Centre is the domestic abuse charity for West Lancashire. We offer support, information and advice to anyone who is living with domestic abuse, worried about a relationship or family situation, wants to talk to someone.
A lot of excellent work continues to take place in West Lancashire to support families and address the complex issues that domestic violence presents. The Community Safety Partnership (CSP) works very closely with the Police and Liberty Centre to tackle domestic abuse and support domestic abuse victims.
