This operation is a national partnership between all schools, families and the Police.
The intention is that all parties will be informed immediately of any reported domestic abuse.
The reason for this relates directly to the impact that domestic abuse has upon the success of young people in education.
Children can be victims of domestic abuse when they are directly targeted for violence/abuse or if they are accidentally assaulted in an incident with others.
Children can also be seriously affected by witnessing domestic abuse.
If the Police are made aware of an incident of domestic abuse, they will notify the school by 11am of the following morning. The school will then decide the appropriate support that is required for the student. The information will be shared with the appropriate members of staff.
The designated lead in St Bonaventure’s for Operation Encompass is Mr Nick Jobbins.
The deputy designated lead in St Bonaventure’s for Operation Encompass is Mr Chris McCormack.
