Operation Encompass


Operation Encompass is an initiative which enhances communication between the police and schools where a child is at risk from domestic abuse. The purpose of the information sharing is to ensure schools have more information to support the safeguarding of children. By knowing that the child has had this experience, the school is in a better position the understand and be supportive of the child's needs and possible behaviours. Operation Encompass will complement existing safeguarding procedures. Please see the link below for further details:
