What is Operation Encompass?
Operation Encompass is a unique police and education, early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who may have been exposed to domestic abuse. Developed in Devonport Plymouth in February 2011 by a police sergeant and his wife, a headteacher It was launched in Norfolk in 2016 following a recommendation from a Serious Case Review.
It is a system which provides an early notification to key adults within a school when a pupil may have been affected by domestic abuse. In response to this notification, schools are able to ensure the appropriate support is available for that child. There are currently 96% of Schools signed up to take part in Operation Encompass in Norfolk and Encompass has now been established and currently operates in some form in 33 forces in England and Wales.
