How MGGS Keeps You Safe
At MGGS we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of everybody who belongs to, or visits our community. To this end, we have produced a short document for students which explains how we do this, as well as giving information on the people students can go and see if they are concerned about their own well-being or that of somebody else. You can read this information by clicking on the link below. Students have been given this information, but we would be grateful if you could spend a little time going through this information with your daughter or son so that they are familiar with our school’s systems and so that they know what to do should they have any concerns.
How MGGS Keeps You Safe (information for students)
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 abuse incident.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all of our students and we believe that this initiative will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
