Operation Encompass: Information for Parents and Carers

On 6th November 2017 St James’ Church of England Primary School implemented a new project that runs jointly between schools and Greater Manchester Police.

This project is called Operation Encompass.  It aims to support children who are affected by domestic violence by ensuring that their school is informed.  This allows the school to support the children.
