Supporting children involved in or witness to domestic violence.
Eastgate Academy participate in a project that runs jointly between schools and our local police force.
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools of any domestic abuse experienced by a child or young person within Eastgate Academy.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff known as a Key Adult, is trained to use the information to support the child and family through the possible difficulties experienced.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved. We will record and store this information in accordance with the record keeping procedures outlined in the Safeguarding and Child Protection policy.
You can find further information from the Operation Encompass website.
