All schools in Pembrokeshire currently take part in a project called Operation Encompass, which runs jointly between schools and Dyfed-Powys Police as a county-wide initiative.
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools of when a child or young person has been exposed to, or is involved in, any domestic incident.
Operation Encompass ensures that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, is trained to use the information that has been shared with them about the domestic incident, to ensure that a child (along with any member of that child’s family) who may have been involved in, or become exposed to, a domestic abuse incident is adequately supported.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all of our pupils, and we believe this project will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
During the COVID 19 period, Operation Encompass will continue to report incidents of domestic abuse to schools, and they may contact you to discuss any support or advice that you might need during this time.
In addition, you can also contact someone to talk to through your school’s digital platform/communication channel if you would like to speak to someone further about any concerns, or get some advice about domestic abuse.
