At Ellergreen Nursery School and Childcare Centre we strive to provide a caring ethos where everyone in the school community feels safe, confident, valued and respected. In conjunction with Merseyside Police, Ellergreen Nursery School and Childcare Centre is involved in an 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 a domestic incident, the police will make contact with Ellergreen Nursery School and Childcare Centre via a secure email (usually the next day) and will communicate relevant information to a nominated, fully-trained member of our safeguarding team. The schools Key Adults are Jane Rogers (Head Teacher & Safeguarding Lead / Designated Safeguarding Co-ordinator) and Kerry Feeney (Senior Teacher and Safeguarding Co-ordinator). The Childcare Centre are Sue Lyon (Manager and Safeguarding Co-ordinator) and Natasha Yong (Deputy Childcare Manager)
This will ensure that as a school, we are made aware early enough, to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe, supported and listened to. It will also provide an opportunity for school to offer support to the whole family.
This is a valuable initiative that means we can continue to support and help children and families within our school community when they need it the most.
