Our School has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly
between schools and South Yorkshire Police. This project is known as Operation
Operation Encompass is the notification to schools that a child (under 18) has been
exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident. This will ordinarily be done by the
start of the next school day.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a specifically trained member of the school
staff, known as a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), is informed. The DSL can
then use the information, in confidence, to ensure the wellbeing of the child. The
school may be able to make provisions or adjustments to assist the young person
and their family.
Our school is keen to offer the best support possible to all of our young people and
we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
