Operation Encompass

We are an Operation Encompass School, part of a national scheme which runs jointly between all schools and the police. 

Operation Encompass is the 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's staff – the Designated Safeguarding Lead, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have recently experienced a domestic abuse incident.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.

For further information in relation to how personal data in relation to yourself and your child(ren) is processed, please refer to Lincolnshire Police’s privacy notice which can be found on their website here: https://www.lincs.police.uk/resource-library/data-protection/privacy-notice/.
