There are currently no procedures for reporting Domestic Abuse incidents to schools which means that our children are 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 9:00 am on the next day, the school Key Adult will be informed that the child or young person has been involved, heard, witnessed a domestic violence 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 St Augustine’s our Key Adults are Sinead Colbeck (Headteacher) and Helen Webb (Pupil and
Family Support Lead)
