Operation Encompass

Rosley School participates in Operation Encompass. This means that any Domestic Abuse incidents that occur at home and are logged with the police, school will be informed of within 24 hours.  This information will be given to the school’s safeguarding team only (DSL- Jo Tinniswood or DDSL in DSL’s absence).  The information allows school to keep their duty of care to the child in school at a level they may need after a domestic abuse encounter. For example: child may be tired, not eaten well, not dressed correctly in school uniform etc due to the home incident.


Any individual who has, or is likely to have unsupervised access to children will require an Enhanced Disclosure For regulated Activity. Further details on this are available by contacting the school on 016973 42776 or by email to or can be found on the DBS website

Members of staff will have this check paid for by Rosley School.  A suitable check must have been carried out and the certificate seen before a member of staff can start working in school.

Students may have their DBS arranged by their education provider and if it is, this must be in place before they begin their placement in our school. A copy of the document must be seen in school before the start date and the education provider must sign a document to state that they will inform Rosley School of any ‘Additional Information’ that they receive regarding a student.  Rosley School has the right to withdraw the offer of a placement in the event of receiving applicable adverse information.

Volunteers may need a DBS check arranged for by Rosley School. There is no cost for the actual check as this is free for volunteers, but the company that we use to undertake this check charges an administration fee. Volunteers cannot start volunteering until the check has been successfully completed and the certificate received.
