Operation Encompass



Research shows that children can be negatively impacted by experiencing or witnessing domestic abuse.  Operation Encompass is a national  programme operated jointly between schools and all police forces in the UK to support children who have been affected. 


Operation Encompass aims to reduce the long-term impact of domestic abuse by providing early intervention and support.  

When the police attend incidents of domestic violence or abuse where children are directly or indirectly involved, they notify the designated safeguarding leads at our school before the start of the next school day. A safeguarding lead will take time to understand a child's behaviour and make sure that they get the immediate support that they need. 

Our designated safeguarding leads (Miss Warren, Mr MacNicol, Miss O'Connell and Mrs Moore) have been trained in Operation Encompass procedures.  This allows us to use the information that has been confidentially shared with us by the police.  Mayfield CE Primary School offer the best support for our pupils and being part of Operation Encompass helps us to do this.


How you can help

If you're a parent or carer concerned about a child affected by domestic abuse, please  speak to one of our designated safeguarding leads.
