Jack in the box will be taking part in a jointly run operation between Warwickshire County Council, Warwickshire police and our nursery, called Operation Encompass. Encompass has been set up to help childcare settings to provide support for children who have been present at incidents of domestic violence.
We are aware that children can be significantly emotionally and/or physically harmed when they are present, involved in or witness to domestic violence.
Jack in the box will receive a confidential phone call or email after any domestic incident where a child that attends the setting has been present, involved in or witness to domestic violence.
parents/ carers have the option of opting out of this however, Warwickshire county council and Warwickshire police will consider each incident and may decide there are significant concerns and therefore, information may be shared with the nursery.
We like to provide the best support possible to our children and believe that Operation Encompass will be beneficial for all of those involved.
At Jack in the box we have designated Safeguard leads, Sam Delaney, Clare Jephcote, Kim Hartwell and Rebecca Wechter.
If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to ask and we will be happy to discuss this further and provide further information.
Sam & Clare
