As part of our work to support children affected by domestic abuse, we work closely with our local police force. “Operation Encompass” involves police notifying schools when one of their pupils has been present at an incident of domestic abuse where the police have attended. This notification will be done the following morning- ideally before the start of the school day. The purpose of the notification is to provide information to schools so that they can support the pupil the next day in whatever way is appropriate. At our school, this will involve checking in with the child and monitoring their well-being. In addition, we will always follow our normal safeguarding procedures in these cases.
