Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass 

Operation Encompass is a police and education early information safeguarding partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support to children experiencing domestic abuse.

In local areas signed up to Operation Encompass, the police must inform a ‘key adult’ at the relevant local school if they have been called to an incident of domestic abuse at a child’s home before 9am the next morning, or before 9am on the Monday morning if an incident occurs over a weekend.

This enables schools to provide support to the child(ren) involved and to better understand the impact living with domestic abuse has upon children.

We are encouraging all police forces in England to take up Operation Encompass and work towards making children safer by engaging with schools at the earliest possible point.
