“In Bolton, all agencies work together with families, to promote the well being of children and keep them safe.”  

Bolton Framework for Action, pg 5

Our aim at St. Peter’s is to ensure our children are able to

“Learn, Sparkle & Shine…”

We therefore seek to provide help and support as early as possible, to remove any possible barriers, preventing this aim from being achieved.

The full policy for safeguarding children at St. Peter’s can be found here.

Encompass

Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run in partnership with Bolton Safeguarding Board and Greater Manchester Police.

The project, Bolton Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school but which might have an impact on a child attending school the following day. This information will be shared on school days during the school term. When incidents occur on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact the relevant school the following Monday.

A nominated member of school staff, known as a Key Adult, will be trained to liaise with the police. At St. Peter’s our Key Adults are Mrs S Percival and Mrs L Williams. They will be able to use information that has been shared with them, in confidence, to ensure that the school is able to support children and their families. Information will be shared where it is identified that a child or young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident.

We always endeavour to offer the best support possible to our pupils and believe that Bolton Encompass is going to be beneficial and supportive for all concerned children and families.

The Universal and Early Help Services we provide are summarised below. (click to enlarge)
