Operation Encompass - working together against Domestic Abuse
We are proud to be an Operation Encompass school which is a key part of keeping children safe after an incident of domestic abuse.
We know that it can be hard for everyone but that children who witness domestic abuse can be victims too so we are here to help them feel safe and to listen whenever they need us.

If you, or anyone in your family is a victim of Domestic Abuse, you can find help here
Call 999 if you or your children are in immediate danger.
What to do if you can’t talk on the phone when you call 999
- If prompted, press 55, this will transfer your call to the police under the Make Yourself Heard system.
- Pressing 55 only works on mobiles and does not allow police to track your location.
Landline (home phone)
- Listen to the questions from the operator and if possible, respond by coughing or tapping the head set.
- If only background noise can be heard and operators can’t decide whether an emergency service is needed, then you’ll be connected to a police call handler.
- information about your location should be automatically available to the call handlers to help provide a response.
You can report a crime 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 101. You can also go online to Dorset Police and use the 101 web chat or the online crime reporting form.
