There are currently no procedures for reporting Domestic Abuse incidents to schools
which means that our children are left without the support and nurture that they need
when they need it most. Operation Encompass has been created to address this so that by
9:00am on the next day, the schools Key Adult will be informed that the child or young person
has been involved, heard, witnessed a domestic violence incident. This knowledge, given to
schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention
through silent or overt support dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.

At St Augustine’s our Key Adults are Sinead Colbeck (Headteacher) and Helen Webb (Pupil and
Family Support Lead)
