Operation Encompass is a unique police and education safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who may have been exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass provides an early notification to key adults within a school when a pupil may have been affected by domestic abuse – following a Police callout to an address. In response to this notification, schools are able to ensure the appropriate support is available for that child.
