The Academy is registered with Operation Encompass

  • One of the principles of Operation Encompass is that all incidents of domestic abuse are shared with schools, not just those where an offence can be identified.
  • Every school appoints a trained Key Adult in the academy. This is Mr. Atkinson  – the Key Adult is the person who receives information about police attended Domestic Abuse incidents and has completed training and will implement any support which is required for the pupil.
  • Operation Encompass is an integral component in child safeguarding and protection policies.

Domestic abuse can include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Financial or economic abuse.
  • Harassment and stalking.
  • Online or digital abuse.
