Operation Encompass - North Yorkshire Police launches initiative to help protect the silent victims of Domestic Abuse

Updated 20th March 2019

Dear Parent/Carer

Operation Encompass

York College has been given the opportunity to take part in a project run jointly between schools, colleges and North Yorkshire Police.

Supported by OfSTED, Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools & colleges, prior to the start of the next day, when a child or young person has been exposed to or involved in a domestic incident.

Operation Encompass will ensure that a designated member of college staff is able to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared in confidence. This will ensure that college is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by a student who has been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our students and we believe this will be extremely beneficial in achieving this.
