Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next  school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.

The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.

Operation Encompass is a Trauma Informed and Trauma Sensitive charity. We acknowledge and understand the impact of Domestic Abuse as an Adverse Childhood Experience(ACE)

Operation Encompass mitigates against the damaged caused by exposure to Domestic Abuse and other ACE’s

ACELens® is the arm of Operation Encompass raising awareness and supporting children exposed to domestic abuse and other ACE’s

Paul Whiteman, General Secretary of the NAHT school leaders union said, “for schools to be able to effectively play their part in supporting children who have witnessed or experienced domestic violence early information is essential.[Operation Encompass] This simple but invaluable sharing of information will help schools prepare for the needs and potential behaviours of a child immediately following an incident.  Schools already work closely with police and social services but early notification can only strengthen that relationship improving the overall support to the child.”
