Supporting your child
Our school works in partnership with West Midlands Police, on a project by the name of Operation Encompass. This project involves the reporting to schools when a child or young person has been exposed or involved in any Domestic Violence incidents.
As a school we have a duty to support your child within any sensitive issues that may arise. A named Police Officer will share information in confidence with the Designated Safeguarding Lead or Designated Deputy Safeguarding Lead. We advocate supporting children and families at Colton Hills Community School. Our School will offer you a listening ear, support and advice as a whole family approach. This service will be treated highly confidentially.
We are keen to work in partnership with the Police and feel this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
Local Authority - In Wolverhampton if you are concerned about a child you can report your concerns to the City of Wolverhampton Children’s Services Multi-Agency and Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 01902 555392.
Free, safe and anonymous online support for young people.
