Operation Encompass

Ashill V.C. Primary School will be taking part in a jointly run operation between

Norfolk County Council, Norfolk Police and our school, it is called Operation

Encompass. Encompass has been set-up to help schools to provide support to

children who have been present at incidents of domestic violence. We know that

children can be significantly physically or emotionally harmed when they are

involved in, present or witness to domestic violence.

 

The school will receive a confidential phone call from the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub before 9am on the morning after any domestic incident where a child at their school has been involved in, present or witness to domestic violence.

 

The school have the above designated staff as Key Adults. They will use the information that has been shared, in confidence to make sure that the right support is available for children and their families, who have been involved in or witnessed a domestic violence incident.

 

We are keen to offer the best support possible to our pupils and we believe this is going to be extremely beneficial for all those involved.

 

If you have any concerns or questions then please contact one of the above Key Adults or myself and we will be happy to discuss this further.
