Operation Encompass

 

The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in or witness to a domestic abuse incident. Domestic abuse impacts on children a numbers of ways. Children are at increased risk of physical injury during an incident, either by accident or because they attempt to intervene. Even when not directly injured, children are greatly distressed by witnessing the physical and emotional suffering of a parent.

Operation Encompass has been created to address this situation. It is the implementation of key partnership working between the police and schools. The aim of sharing information with local schools is to allow ‘Key Adults’ the opportunity of engaging with the child and to provide access to support that allows them to remain in a safe but secure familiar environment.

Following the report of an incident of domestic abuse, by 9:00 am on the next school day the school’s Key Adult will be informed that the child or young person has been involved in 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.

The purpose and procedures in Operation Encompass have been shared with all parents and Governors, is detailed as part of the school’s Safeguarding Policy and published on our school website.

Parental Consent for Transporting Children in Cars.

We have been advised by Lancashire's Health Protection Team to pass on that it is the time of year when 'Winter Vomiting' (Norovirus) can spread very quickly though schools and nurseries. We have been offered some advice for reducing the chances of an outbreak within school and attached is an advice letter for parents so you can also be vigilant. The key message is that if your child has symptons of sickness or diarrhoea, even if they feel well again in themselves, they must not come to school for at least 48 hours so that the spread of the condition is controlled.
