At Ashton West End Primary Academy, we are committed to safeguarding.

Our Safeguarding Team are:
• Miss Pizuti (Designated Safeguarding Lead)
• Ms Barnett (Deputy Safeguarding Lead)

Miss Higginson is our learning mentor. She is on hand to discuss any worries or concerns with your child.

Our teams can be contacted via the school office. We are also on hand in the playground at the beginning of everyday.

More information about safeguarding can be found on our policies page. You can click on the link on the left hand side of the page.

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is the process used to inform or report to schools, prior to 9.00 a.m. the following school day, when the police have attended an incident in which a child or young person has been involved in or been exposed to an incident of domestic violence or abuse. The information is given to a trained ‘Key Adult’ within the school. The child can then be supported with silent or overt support.

There is a link to the Operation Encompass Website on the left hand side of this page or you can speak to the Key Adult in school via the school office.

Key Adult: Miss Pizuti
Deputy Key Adult: Ms Barnett
