Operation Encompass is a project that will run jointly between schools and Dyfed-Powys Police. It is a county-wide initiative across all schools in Powys.
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.
Each year the Governors present a report to you, the parents, to give a summary of important information relating to the school’s performance for the last school year, ending July 2019.

PUPIL DEPRIVATION GRANT (PDG) Statement
The PDG is a grant to schools from the Welsh Government targeted at those pupils eligible for free school meals. We use the grant to provide opportunities for these children that they otherwise might not have available to them. It is also used to help these children to achieve their full potential. A proportion of all school visits and trips is covered for all eligible pupils and the remainder provides in class support for these pupils.

We want our pupils to get the best education, and the building blocks for this begin with pupils coming to school each and every day. If children miss school regularly, they miss out on learning the fundamental skills that will set them up for success in the later years of school.
Our approach to ensuring regular school attendance is based on the Powys Traffic Lights attendance Scheme.
