Operation Encompass




Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting to schools / colleges of any domestic abuse incidents that occur in which a child was present, ordinarily resides at the incident location or with an involved party.  We know that children can be significantly affected through witnessing or being exposed to domestic abuse, and this operation will allow us to better support our students and their families.

A nominated member of staff, known as a Key Adult, will be trained to liaise with the police. At Oak Grove College, our Key Adult is James Winchester.  He will be able to use information that has been shared with him, in confidence, to ensure that the right support is available should it be required by a child and / or their family.

We are keen to offer the best support available to our students and we believe this is going to be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
