Operation Encompass


Teesville Academy is an Operation Encompass School

What is Operation Encompass?

The Purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in a domestic abuse incident.  Following an incident at home, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset and unprepared for the day.


Redcar and Cleveland Council, Cleveland Police and nominated key adults in school will be working together to make sure that staff are made aware of an incident early enough to support pupils in school.  Our key adults are Mrs Jill Ashman and Mrs Sharon Weston.

How does it work?

Each morning a police officer will review all domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school but which might have had an impact on a child attending school the following day. Where children are present, witnessed or involved in a domestic abuse incident and aged between 4 and 16 years old, the officer will send information to the Council's Initial Contact and Referral Team who will then send this information in a secure format, usually a phonecall, to the named key adult in the child's school.  The key adult will then inform staff in contact with those pupils to support them in a way that is right for the child.
