Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.

The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.

Operation Encompass is a Trauma Informed and Trauma Sensitive charity. We acknowledge and understand the impact of Domestic Abuse as an Adverse Childhood Experience.


Hannah’s School and E-safety

We recognise that the internet, social media and electronic technologies in a rapidly shrinking world can bring amazing benefits to everyone BUT their misuse can also be equally destructive. Unfortunately, we all know too well some of the damage misuse can cause. It is important for children and young people that they are able to access these technologies (with appropriate support) for their learning, family life, friends and leisure.

Keeping the children and young people safe is key. Families can install parental controls. Schools train their staff in acceptable use and e-safety. They have specific filters installed so that the use of “dubious” sites is reported. You can look for information from various sources but the UK Safer Internet Centre may be useful www.saferinternet.org.uk
