Operation Encompass

 

 

 

Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting to schools / colleges of any domestic abuse incidents that occur in which a child was present, ordinarily resides at the incident location or with an involved party.  We know that children can be significantly affected through witnessing or being exposed to domestic abuse, and this operation will allow us to better support our students and their families.

A nominated member of staff, known as a Key Adult, will be trained to liaise with the police. At Oak Grove College, our Key Adult is James Winchester.  He will be able to use information that has been shared with him, in confidence, to ensure that the right support is available should it be required by a child and / or their family.

We are keen to offer the best support available to our students and we believe this is going to be extremely beneficial for all those involved.

Thrive Federation’s West Worthing 5k & 10k, 11th March 2018

Mothering Sunday saw the second West Worthing 5k & 10k run for the Thrive Federation. The run was a fantastic success with over 500 competitors and the rain held off to allow lots of supporters to come and cheer the runners on making a great atmosphere for everyone.
The schools would like to give a huge thank you to Tesco at West Durrington for supplying the water for all the runners. We would particularly like to thank Myra Jasper, Tesco’s Community Champion, for organising the water, contacting local councillors, Lionel Harman and Steve Wills, to come and volunteer by marshalling and inviting Bob Smytherman our local town crier and Sean McDonald, Worthing and local councillor, to come and support the event and hand out medals. On top of all this she also ran the 10k!
Another huge thank you to Ridge Crest Cleaning Limited for their generous sponsorship of the registration marquee and donation buckets.
Thank you also to all the school staff and governors who gave up their free time on Mother’s Day to don their running shoes, marshal, hand out water, collect donations, bake and sell cakes, all without whom the event would not have been a success.
