Our School


Worried about a child who might be at risk of harm or in danger?

Acting quickly can make all the difference.

If you think a child might be suffering neglect or abuse, it can be difficult to know what to do. But your action is vital in making sure that child gets the help they need.

If you are concerned about a child in East Sussex call the SPOA (Single Point Of Advice) on 01323 464222

For serious out of hours concerns which cannot wait until the next day call the Emergency Duty Service on 01273 335906 or 01273 335905.

If you think the child is in immediate danger, you should call the police on 999.

Operation Encompass
Chantry is part of Operation Encompass. Operation Encompass is a police and education early information safeguarding partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support to children experiencing domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass ensures that there is a simple telephone call or notification to a school’s trained Designated Safeguarding Lead /Officer (known as key Adult) prior to the start of the next school day after an incident of police attended domestic abuse where there are children related to either of the adult parties involved. 

Information is shared with a school’s Key Adult (Designated Safeguarding Lead or Officer) prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident. This sharing of information enables appropriate support to be given, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.
