The Academy has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between education providers and Devon and Cornwall Police.
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the Academy staff, known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, while ensuring that the Academy is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our young people and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
Further information is available from the Operation Encompass website (http://www.operationencompass.org).
Additionally, I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about this initiative.
