Operation Encompass 

Operation Encompass is the process used to inform or report to schools, prior to 9.00 a.m. the following school day, when the police have attended an incident in which a child or young person has been involved in or been exposed to an incident of domestic violence or abuse. The information is given to a trained ‘Key Adult’ within the school. The child can then be supported with silent or overt support.

There is a link to the Operation Encompass Website on the left hand side of this page or you can speak to the Key Adult in school via the school office. 

Key Adult: Miss Kinch 

Deputy Key Adult: Mrs Brandreth

Further information about Operation Encompass can be found in the Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy (Appendix 7) and a letter has been sent out to all parents/carers. This can be found on the letters and policies page.
