 Lots of our older pupils are using messaging services such as WhatsApp. These services offer the benefit of being able to speak with a number of people at once, instantly, and are often available free as applications on phones. I would strongly recommend all parents to read the following advice regarding WhatsApp, as there are several implications for children’s safety. https://www.internetmatters.org/hub/guidance/whatsapp-safety-a-how-to-guide-for-parents/  In particular, it is very easy for children’s name and telephone numbers to be shared with people they don’t know when using WhatsApp.  WhatsApp’s advertised minimum age for users is 16.  

Most of all, as always, I would urge parents to talk openly and honestly with their children about how they are using their digital devices.

Using Instagram is popular with some older pupils at school. Parents are reminded that the minimum age for Instagram users is 13, and are invited to read Instagram Tips for Parents via this link: https://help.instagram.com/154475974694511

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
