Operation Encompass is a unique police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership enabling support for children who have experienced domestic abuse.
It will ensure that all incidents of Domestic Abuse brought to the attention of the police are shared with schools, not just those where an offence can be identified.
As a school our part in this is to receive information as soon as possible in order to support and safeguard the children involved.
Please see a copy of our child protection policy in order to see how we carry out safeguarding in the school.
