Our school is signed up to the Operation Encompass (previously Relay) initiative that runs jointly between Schools, Central Bedfordshire Council and Bedfordshire Police. Please click the link below to read the letter to parents.
Operation Encompass focuses on early notification to schools of any reported domestic abuse incidents that occur which might have a significant impact on a child in school.
Operation Encompass will contact the Key Adult (our Designation Safeguarding Lead or Deputy) prior to the start of the next school day to share relevant information in confidence, so that support can be offered or provision can be made to those children, or their families, who have experienced a domestic abuse incident.
If you would like to speak to someone in confidence about domestic abuse, call 0808 2000 247 (for women seeking help) or 0808 8010327 (for men seeking help) or go to the Bedfordshire Domestic Abuse Partnership website: https://bedsdv.org.uk/.
