Important Information 

Operation EncompassThe school has signed up to Operation Encompass. This is a system where the Metropolitan Police report to schools, prior to the start of the next day, when a child has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident. Operation Encompass will ensure that the Designated Safeguarding Lead in school is informed and then able to use this information, in confidence, to make any necessary provision for difficulties experienced by children or their families as a result of a domestic abuse incident.

Trailblazer Mental HealthWe are very proud to be part of the Trailblazer project for Richmond as part of the Green paper on Mental Health with the aim of 'Transforming mental health provision for children and young people in schools'. We will have access to a Mental Health Support Team (MHST) who will provide additional expertise, capacity and support to help us treat mild to moderate mental health issues and support mental health & wellbeing.

Chaplains Message

I was given a lovely book of ink drawings by Charlie Mackesy this Christmas; "The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse" here these four friends journey along in life together. One line early on in the book struck me whilst thinking about the New Year... [the Mole says] "Most of the old moles I know wish they had listened less to their fears and more to their dreams" My prayer for us all this January is that we may know God is living among us and with his love, he will calm all our fears and as Zephaniah 3:17 says He will rejoice over you with joyful singing!

Congratulations to:
