Operation Encompass

 

Dear Parents and Carers

The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Devon and Cornwall Police

 Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident and the police have been in attendance.

 Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, either Miss Summers or Miss Murts known as a Key Adults, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence. This will help ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.

 We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
