Our School works jointly with, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and South Yorkshire Police.
Operation Encompass is the notification to schools that a child (under 18) may have been affected by a domestic incident. This will be done by the start of the next school day.
Operation Encompass ensures that a specifically trained member of the school staff, known as a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), is informed. The DSL can then use the information, in confidence, to ensure the wellbeing of the child. This may mean making provisions or adjustments to assist the young person.
Our school is keen to offer the best support possible to all of our young people and we believe this is extremely beneficial for all those involved.
