Operation Encompass

We are also part of Operation Encompass.  This is a joint project with Sussex Police.  The project provides early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents involving children (incidents in which a child was present, ordinarily resides at the incident location or with an involved party). 

Operation Encompass is an innovative partnership project between schools and the police force. The project, which commenced in January 2019, aims to support children who are affected by Domestic Abuse. Witnessing domestic abuse is really distressing for a young person, who can often see the abuse, hear it from another room, see a parent's injuries or distress afterwards or be physically hurt trying to stop the abuse.

As a result, following any domestic abuse incident being reported into local police, specialist Police Officers will make contact with the school and communicate relevant and necessary information to nominated school staff. This will ensure that the school is made aware at the earliest possible opportunity and can subsequently provide support in a way that means the child feels safe.

Each school has a member of staff (key adult) who has been fully trained to liaise with the Police, when required, and will ensure that necessary support is made available to the child following the disclosure of a domestic abuse incident.

This project demonstrates the school's commitment to working in partnership, to safeguard and protect children, and to providing the best possible care and support for our pupils.

Online Safety

Online safety is a vital part of keeping children safe at Brunswick Primary School.

We strongly encourage sensible use of digital and online technologies as they open up huge possibilities for learning for all our children. Children can use the Internet to research new information, as well as connecting to children they know online via mobile phones. We want our children to enjoy the benefits of but, at the same time, we believe they must be made aware of the potential dangers involved in this ever changing digital world.


For parents and carers, this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of, in particular the need to ensure your child’s safe and responsible use of technology. The links on our Online Safety page will provide lots of useful information. CLICK HERE.
