Operation Encompass

Our school participates in a Police led initiative called Operation Encompass. This is a partnership between Stoke schools and the Police, which helps schools to better support any child where a domestic incident has been reported to Police from their home.

Following a domestic incident, the Police will make contact with the child’s school via  secure email (usually the next day) to communicate relevant information to a nominated members of school staff, which are Mrs Cunliffe and Mrs Walton. This will ensure that as a school, we are made aware early enough, to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe, supported and listened to. It will also provide an opportunity for school to offer support to the whole family.

The initiative was launched county-wide at the beginning of 2016.  You can find out more about Operation Encompass via the following site: http://www.operationencompass.org.

If you would like to speak to someone further about the initiative, or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Walton
