As part of Astley Park School’s commitment in keeping children safe we are proud to be part of Operation Encompass.

Operation Encompass is a unique Police and Education Early Intervention Safeguarding Partnership which ensures that a child's school is informed, prior to the start of the next school day, that there has been an incident of Domestic Abuse to which the child or young person has been exposed to.

Each school is informed of all Domestic Abuse incidents, not just those where an offence can be identified or those which are graded as high risk. The partnership recognises that all incidents of Domestic Abuse can be harmful to children and young people.

This information will be shared throughout the year, including school holidays and weekends with the Key Adult. Information will only be shared with the Key Adult by the police where it is identified that a young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident. This initiative has been implemented across the whole of the Lancashire Police area.

At Astley Park School our Key Adult is Nicola Patterson (DSL)
