Operation Encompass

Supporting children in or witness to domestic violence

At Loddon Primary Federation we are working in partnership with Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk Children’s services to identify and provide appropriate support to pupils who have experienced domestic violence in their household; this scheme is called Operation Encompass.  In order to achieve this, Norfolk Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub will share police information of all domestic incidents where one of our pupils has been present with the Designated Safeguarding Lead(s).  On receipt of any information, the designated Safeguarding Lead will decide on the appropriate support the child requires, this could be silent or overt.  All information sharing and resulting actions will be undertaken in accordance with the ’Norfolk Joint Agency Protocol for Domestic Abuse – Notifications to Schools’.  We will record this information and store this information in accordance with the record keeping procedures outlined in the safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.


Notification process for schools for Domestic Violence Incidents

This process intends to notify schools before 9am where a child has been witness, present or involved in a domestic incident, where police have attended.  This process does not replace existing child protection / safeguarding arrangements.
