At Archbishop Holgate’s School, all staff and parents prioritise the safety of students at all time. Prevention and education are the best methods for keeping students safe. Across our curriculum, we teach our students how to stay safe. Below are a range of either pages or links on topics that will help you understand how to keep your child safe, spot danger signs and offer you support and help.

Operation Encompass

Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run jointly between all schools, academies and colleges in York and North Yorkshire. This new project, Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a child attending our premises the following day. This information will be shared at the earliest opportunity between Monday to Friday and, when an incident occurs on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact us the following Monday.
