Operation Encompass


At St Joseph's we take part in a project called Operation Encompass that is run jointly between schools and Devon and Cornwall Police.

Operation Encompass means a member of the police contacts school, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident where police have been called.

Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence.  This ensures that, where necessary, provision can be made for any difficulties being experienced by the children, or their family as a result of a domestic abuse incident.

At St Joseph's Mrs Stephens and Mrs Keeping are the key adults who liaise with Operation Encompass.
