Safeguarding at Aintree Davenhill
Operation Encompass

Our school is part of an initiative, which is run between Merseyside schools and Merseyside Police. The project called Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting of any domestic violence incidents that occur outside school, which might have an
impact on a child in school. This is done through a notification to school following an incident.

The project ensures that at least one member of the school staff, known as the Key Adult, is trained to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence. In this way, we aim to support each child who has been involved in, or
witnessed, a domestic abuse incident.

The Key Adult at Aintree Davenhill Primary is Miss Clay. If she receives an Encompass notification she will make sure that an adult the child trusts is available to help - if the child needs this. A lot of the time this support is silent; keeping a careful eye on him or her and
make sure the child has a calm school day. The confidential information is ordinarily not shared with all staff, just an agreement on how to help, if needed.

All schools have a duty to share any information with other organisations if they feel a child
is at risk of being hurt. Miss Clay may contact other organisations. This is described in our
Child Protection Policy.

The sharing of information from the Police allows the school to be ready to help your child straight away, and it means that parents are aware that Miss Clay knows that something has happened. Parents can come and talk to Miss Clay at any time. She can point you towards
other people that can help. Our aim is to support children and their families.

If you have any questions about Operation Encompass, please do not hesitate to contact us.
