Operation Encompass is a project that is running in various part of the United Kingdom.
It is an initiative to enhance communication between the police and schools where a child is at risk from domestic abuse.
The purpose is to ensure schools have more information to support safeguarding of children. When police have attended any domestic violence incidents at the homes of children, their schools are informed before the next school day begins. By knowing that the child has had this experience, the school is in a better position to understand and be supportive of the child’s needs and possible behaviours.
Operation Encompass will complement existing safeguarding procedures.
