Our school is part of a project, which is run between schools and the Devon and Cornwall Police.
The project (Operation Encompass) has been designed to provide early reporting of any domestic violence incidents that occur outside school, which might have an impact on a child in school. This is done through a phone call to school following an incident.
We have two key members of the school staff at Sherford Vale School, known as the ‘Key Adult’ and they are trained to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence.
The Key Adults at Sherford Vale School are Mrs Helen Tipping and Mrs Emma Barrett.
