We are an Operation Encompass Academy. The Operation Encompass offers support for victims of domestic abuse.”
Operation Encompass is a police and education, early information, safeguarding partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support to children experiencing domestic abuse.
Operation Encompass ensures that there is a notification to our school’s trained Designated Safeguarding Lead /Officer (known as Key Adult) prior to the start of the next school day after an incident of police attended domestic abuse where there are children related to either of the adult parties involved.
Information is shared with our school’s Key Adult prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident.
Children are negatively impacted by experiencing domestic abuse and without early intervention and support this negative impact can last through a child’s life course. Domestic abuse can impact upon social, psychological, physical, emotional and behavioural outcomes with an often-negative impact upon a child’s academic success. Experiencing domestic abuse has been identified as an Adverse Childhood Experience.
Operation Encompass aims to secure better outcomes for children, to enable schools to better understand the impact living with domestic abuse has upon children, to understand a child’s lived experience and to be able to support and nurture each child.
