At Marhamchurch C of E Primary we are committed to Safeguarding all the children in our school.
When concerns of a Safeguarding or Child Protection nature are raised we will contact parents to discuss these. In some cases we will need to refer our concerns to the Multi Agency Referral Unit (MARU) for further advice and possible assessment. As part of our duty of care, safeguarding records are held securely and confidentially within the school. If you have any Safeguarding concerns please speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team on the poster below, alternatively the poster displays the numbers for the Multi Agency Referral Unit (MARU) if it is out of school hours or you wish to make your own referral. (You can open the poster with the link below to read more clearly).
Marhamchurch C of E VC Primary School are taking part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Devon and Cornwall Police. It is called Operation Encompass and involves the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
