We are an ‘Operation Encompass’ School
Operation Encompass is an innovative project that is being run in partnership with Humberside Police and is aimed to support children who are affected by Domestic Abuse.
Following any domestic abuse incident being reported into Humberside Police, the school will be informed of a child’s involvement. This knowledge within school allows a trained Key Adult to offer the provision of immediate early intervention through overt or silent support, dependant on the needs and wishes of the child.
