Previously, there have been no procedures for reporting Domestic Abuse incidents to schools which means that some children have been left without the support and nurture that they need when they need it most. Operation Encompass has been created to address this so that by 9.00am on the next school day, the school’s key adult will be informed that the child or young person has been involved, heard or witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child. At SASJ, our key adult is the headteacher.
