What is Operation Encompass?
At Eccleston Lane Ends we strive to provide a caring ethos where everyone in the school community feels safe, confident, valued and respected. As part of this Eccleston Lane Ends participates in a police led initiative called Operation Encompass. This is a partnership between schools and the police that helps schools to better support any child where a domestic incident has been reported to police from their home.
Following a domestic incident, the police will make contact with the child’s school via a secure email (usually the next day) and will communicate relevant information to a nominated, fully-trained member of our safeguarding team. This will ensure that as a school, we are made aware early enough, to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe, supported and listened to. It will also provide an opportunity for school to offer support to the whole family. Where everyone can live and work together in a supportive way, enables all to reach their full potential, emotionally, socially and intellectually.
The initiative was launched force-wide at the beginning of 2015. It is active in all Merseyside schools. You can find out more about Operation Encompass via the following site:
