At Attleborough Academy Norfolk, we are working in partnership with Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk Children's Services to identify and provide appropriate support to students who have experienced domestic violence in their household; this scheme is called Operation Encompass. In order to achieve this, Norfolk Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub will share police information of all domestic incidents where one of our students has been present with the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs). On receipt of any information, the Designated Safeguarding Lead will decide on the appropriate support the child receives, this could be silent or overt.
All information sharing and resulting actions will be undertaken in accordance with the 'Norfolk Joint Agency Protocol for Domestic Abuse - Notifications to Schools'. We will record this information and store this information in accordance with the record keeping procedures outlined in the AAN Safeguarding Incorporating Child Protection Policy in Practice (Part 2 of 2).
