Operation Encompass is a project which provides partnership between South Yorkshire Police and Education settings, supported by the Local Safeguarding Children's Board.
Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting on any domestic abuse incidents, where the police have attended and that might have an impact on a child in school.
Miss Blades-Baker will be informed when a domestic abuse incident has been recorded within the previous 24 hours or over the weekend. This will enable school to monitor children possibly affected, and, where required, support if necessary.
The information will be used by Miss Blades-Baker in confidence. They will also ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children who have been involved in, affected by, or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.
At Copley, we are keen to offer the best support possible to our pupils and we believe that Operation Encompass further enhances our robust safeguarding procedures in school.
