We have been given the opportunity to take part in a project which will run jointly between schools and Greater Manchester Police.
Operation Encompass is reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day when a child or young person has experienced any domestic abuse.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff (Designated Safeguard Lead) known as a key adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, whilst ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have experienced a domestic abuse incident.
We believe that we must offer the best support possible to all our pupils, and we believe this will be extremely beneficial to all those involved.
