Operation Encompass

At Folksworth Church of England Primary School we are working in partnership with Cambridgeshire Police and Cambridgeshire County Council to identify and provide appropriate support to pupils who have experienced domestic abuse in their home; this scheme is called Operation Encompass.


In order to achieve this, Cambridgeshire’s Education Safeguarding Team will share police
information of all domestic incidents, where one of our pupils has been present, with the
Designated Safeguarding Lead(s) (DSL)/Domestic Abuse (DA)Lead. On receipt of any
information, the DSL/DA Lead will decide on the appropriate support the child may require.


The Operation Encompass information is stored in line with all other confidential safeguarding
and child protection information. All information sharing and resulting actions will be
undertaken in accordance with the ‘Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Joint Agency Protocol
for Domestic Abuse – Notifications to Schools, Colleges and Early Years settings’.
