MGGS is an Operation Encompass school and subscribes to the principles as set out in the Operation Encompass strategy:
Operation Encompass was created so that by 9.00am on the next school day, a nominated Key Adult will be informed by Kent Police that a child or young person has been involved in a domestic incident the previous night.
This knowledge, given to schools, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through ‘silent’ or ‘overt’ support, depending upon the needs and wishes of the child.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a designated member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, will liaise with the police and use the information that has been shared, in confidence, whilst ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have experienced a domestic incident.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our students and we believe that this initiative will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
