All Wiltshire schools have been given the opportunity to take part in this project that will run jointly between schools and Wiltshire Police: ENCOMPASS is the reporting to schools, by the next school day, when a child or young person has affected by a domestic incident. This is a new initiative that has been developed to support children and young people and their families.
ENCOMPASS will ensure that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, will be shared the information in confidence, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, affected or exposed to a domestic abuse incident. The Key Adult at this school will be Mrs Talbot.
This initiative will allow us to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
