Safeguarding and Online Safety

Safeguarding

Kilburn Grange School takes its responsibility seriously to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people in our care. Our safeguarding policy sets out how the school discharges its statutory responsibilities relating to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children who are pupils at our schools.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Ms Helen Khinich. Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Miss Sarah Storey and Mr Rob Farrell. For safeguarding enquiries, please email: safeguarding@kilburngrangeschool.org.uk

Operation Encompass

Kilburn Grange School takes part in a project called Operation Encompass. Operation Encompass directly connects the Metropolitan Police service with schools to ensure that support is provided for children living with or have been exposed to domestic abuse in their homes. Rapid provision of support within the school environment will enable the child to be better safeguarded against the short, medium and long-term effects of domestic abuse. We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and believe that working collaboratively with pupils, the Metropolitan Police service and parents will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
To find out more about Operation Encompass, please read this letter from the Headteacher.
