Operation Encompass is a unique Police and School intervention for safeguarding children. It supports children and young people who have been exposed to Domestic Abuse. Being part of Encompass means that our school will receive a notification before the start of the next school day if a young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous day. This enables adults to provide the best support for the child or family.
