Operation Encompass

Our three schools are all Operation Encomass Schools. This is a nationwide system which ensures the Police are able to inform schools before the next school day, about any incidents of Domestic Violence which have affected a child at the school. This allows the school to prepare resources, staffing etc for a child who may be attending in a state of distress.

Through our partnership with Operation Encompass, families who have a police presence due to reported domestic violence can expect to be asked to name their child's school in the knowledge that this information will be passed on sensitively and professionally, for the good of the children.
