Operation Encompass is a police and school early intervention safeguarding information sharing partnership which supports children experiencing domestic violence and abuse.
Operation Encompass is based upon the national requirements to not only identify children in need of support but to also ensure that this support is put in place immediately: "Nothing is more important than children’s welfare. Children who need help and protection deserve high quality and effective support as soon as a need is identified."
Police are a ‘local safeguarding partner’ required to ‘make arrangements to work together’ (with the other partners) ‘to safeguard and promote the welfare of local children including identifying and responding to their needs’ Working Together to Safeguard Children and all its requirements apply to all schools.
At Fladbury we have 2 Key Adults - Miss Julie Wilson Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and Miss Samantha Chance Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) both Level 3 and above safeguarding trained; and both Key Adults have undertaken the online Key Adult training accessed free from the Operation Encompass website www.operationencompass.org.
