North Walsham High School are taking part in a jointly run operation between Norfolk County Council and Norfolk Police called Operation Encompass.  Encompass has been set up to help schools provide support to children who have been present at incidents of domestic violence.  We know that children can be significantly physically or emotionally harmed when they are involved in, or witness to, domestic violence.

If you are concerned about a child in Norfolk and want to speak to someone, contact Norfolk County Council, Children’s Services on 0344 800 8020.  If you consider the child to be in immediate danger, call 999.

If you’re worried that a child is being bullied online, or want to discuss your concern you can call the NSPCC helpline for parents and professionals at any time on 0808 800 5000, or visit their website (https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/)

If you are concerned that a young person is being sexually abused or groomed online, you can report to CEOP (Child Exploitation Online Protection). This might be from someone they know or someone they have only ever met online. CEOP are there to help and advise you and to make sure the child concerned is safe.  https://www.ceop.police.uk/Safety-Centre/
