Operation Encompass

Our school is part of Operation Encompass. This is a police initiative, which supports children and young people who have witnessed or experienced Domestic Abuse. Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school, which might have an impact on a child in school. This is communicated through a secure email or telephone call to school following an incident. The project ensures that the designated safeguarding lead is available to liaise with children’s services and the police and to use the information that has been shared in confidence. In this way we aim to support each child who has been involved in or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. The Operation Encompass information is stored in line with all other safeguarding and child protection information.

If a designated safeguarding lead receives an Encompass notification, they will make sure that a person the child trusts is available to help – if the child needs this. All schools have a duty to share any information with other organisations if they feel a child is at risk of being hurt. The designated safeguarding lead may contact other organisations.
