Operation Encompass

Our school is part of a project that is run between Salford Local Authority, schools and Greater Manchester Police. The project is called Operation Encompass and has been designed to provide early reporting of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside school, which might have an impact on a child in school. This is communicated through a secure email to school following an incident.

The project ensures that at least one member of the school staff, known as the Key Adult, is available to liaise with children’s services and the police and to use the information that has been shared in confidence.

In this way, we aim to support each child who has been involved in, or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.

If they receive an Encompass notification, they will make sure that a person the child trusts is available to help – if the child needs this. Most of the time, this support is silent; keeping a careful eye on him or her and making sure the child has a positive day in school. The confidential information is ordinarily not shared with all staff, just an agreement on how to help, if needed.

All schools have a duty to share any information with other organisations if they feel a child is at risk of being hurt. The Key Adult(s) may contact other organisations.

The Key Adults at The Albion Academy are Ms D Andrews and Mrs M Lawman
