Safeguarding children is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.

Our pupils' welfare is our paramount concern. The Governing Board will ensure that our school will safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils and work together with other agencies to ensure that our school has adequate arranegments to identify, assess and support those chidlren who are suffering or likely to suffer harm.

Our school is a family and all those directly connected- staff, governors, volunteers, parents, and children have an essential role to play in making it safe and secure.


In conjunction with Merseyside Police, Greenleas is involved in a scheme called Operation Encompass. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.  Following such an incident, children can arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared. Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate key staff (called key adults) are made aware early enough  to support children in a way that makes them feel safe and supported.

Merseyside Police will also now share details about children who are missing from home with us so that we can appropriately understand and support their needs when they return.

At Greenleas our key adults are Mrs Sharon Edwards (headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead and Mrs Jen Higgerson (assistant headteacher and Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead).

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our children and families and we believe this valuable scheme is extremely beneficial for all those involved. You can find out more by visiting
