Operation Encompass 

 
Falmouth Primary Academy is an Operation Encompass School. 
 
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident. 
 
Operation Encompass ensures that a member of the school 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. This enables us to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident. 

 

The Key adults in school are Christie Legg (DSL), Claire Smith (DDSL) and Hannah Bennett (DDSL)
