Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a new innovative project in which schools in South Tyneside will be participating and is being run in partnership with Northumbria Police.

The project, which will commence in January 2016, aims to support children who are affected by Domestic Abuse.  Witnessing domestic abuse is really distressing for a young person, who can often see the abuse, hear it from another room, see a parent's injuries or distress afterwards or be physically hurt trying to stop the abuse.

As a result, following any domestic abuse incident being reported into Northumbria Police, specialist Police Officers will make contact with Children’s Social Care who will then communicate relevant and necessary information to nominated school staff.  This will ensure that the school is made aware at the earliest possible opportunity and can subsequently provide support to children, in a way that means they feel safe and listened to.

Each school has a member of staff (key adult) who has been fully trained to liaise with the Police and Social Services, when required, and will ensure that necessary support is made available to the child following the disclosure of a domestic abuse incident.

We believe that this project demonstrates our school’s commitment to working in partnership, to safeguard and protect children, and to providing the best possible care and support for our pupils.

In the meantime, if you would like to speak to someone further about the project or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact Lorraine Lobban or Kayleigh Clark on 0191 4283200 or by email This email address is being protected from spambots.
