Our school is currently part of Operation Encompass. The purpose of this initiative is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been present , witnesses or been involved in a domestic abuse incident.

Following such an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset and unprepared.  Operation Encompass aims to ensure that nominated staff are made aware of the incident, early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.

All schools will have a nominated key adult, in our case this is Mrs Palmer. Each morning North Yorkshire Police will review all reported domestic abuse records.  Where recorded incidents show children, between the ages of four and eighteen years of age were present, or witnessed or were involved in such abuse, the key adult in the school the child attends will be contacted and the information shared.  

The staff working with those pupils will then be in an informed position to support them in a way that is right for that particular child, if it is felt appropriate to do so.
