A modern school, with traditional values

Operation Encompass

Our  school is part of Operation Encompass. This is a police and  education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Abuse.


Operation Encompass means that the police will share information about Domestic Abuse incidents with our school PRIOR to the start of the next school day when they have been called to a domestic incident.

Once the Designated Safeguarding Lead or Deputy Safeguarding Lead has processed the information from the police, they will cascade this information to any other relevant staff.


Our parents are fully aware that we are an Operation Encompass school.

The Operation Encompass information is stored in line with all other confidential safeguarding and child protection information using our MyConcern system.


We are aware that we must do nothing that puts the child/ren or the non abusing adult at risk.


The DSL or DDSL will use the Operation Encompass Toolkit to ensure that all appropriate actions will be taken by the school.
