Operation Encompass – Supporting children through key adults

Freebrough Academy has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run jointly between all schools in East Cleveland, Middlesbrough and Cleveland Police. This new project, Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a student attending school the following day.

This information will be shared at the earliest opportunity between Monday to Thursday and, when an incident occurs on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact us the following Monday. Helen Porter, Assistant Principal, known as a key adult, has been trained to liaise with the police.

If you would like some more information about Operation Encompass operates and the benefits of it, you can view it online at http://www.cleveland.police.uk/advice-information/OperationEncompass.aspx

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our students and we believe this is initiative is going to be extremely beneficial and supportive for all those involved.
