Operation Encompass is a partnership between police and schools.
One of the principles of Operation Encompass is that all incidents of domestic abuse are shared with schools, not just those where an offence can be identified.
Every school appoints a trained Key Adult – the Key Adult is the person who receives information about police attended Domestic Abuse incidents.
The Key Adult will be notified prior to the start of the next school day that the police have attended an incident of domestic abuse. This timely information sharing enables appropriate support to be provided for that child so that all interactions, from when the child first arrives at the school gates, are of a positive nature.
The Key Adults at Bridge Hall primary School are: Mrs Alexandra Jamieson (Lead DSL)
Mrs Deborah Henderson (Deputy DSL)
