is a police led, school based early intervention safeguarding scheme which supports children and young people exposed to Domestic Abuse.
Operation Encompass was created to ensure that prior to 9.00 am on the next day the school will be informed that a child or young person has been exposed to a domestic abuse incident. This knowledge, given to the school's trained Key Adult allows the provision of immediate early intervention through overt or silent support, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.
Key Adults: the Key Adult role is undertaken by the Designated Safeguarding Lead in the school.
A specific awareness raising briefing (am only) has been devised for all Key Adults in each school and college and this will ensure that the ‘raw sensitive and dynamic information’ given by Operation Encompass is dealt with appropriately in every setting
There are 2 places per school for the Head Teacher and DSL or the DSL and Deputy DSL. Listed below are the venues, please book as soon as possible but by the latest on 19th July 2017.
A school that has not sent either the Head Teacher or a DSL to a briefing cannot be part of Operation Encompass.
