In conjunction with Merseyside Police, Saint Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic Academy is involved in an initiative called Operation Encompass. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. Following such an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared. Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate academy staff, called key adults, are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.

At St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic Academy our Key Adult is Mr Harrison (Assistant Headteacher: Behaviour and Attitudes). Other key adults also include the Year Managers who are Ms N. Manning, Ms S. Savage and Ms S. Baker.

This is a valuable initiative that means we can continue to support and help children and families within our academy community when they need it most. You can find out more information by visiting or by contacting Mr Harrison at the academy on 0151 4778770.
