At St Francis of Assisi Catholic College, we are working in partnership with West Midlands Police and Walsall Children’s Services to identify and provide appropriate support to pupils who have experienced domestic abuse in their household; this scheme is called Operation Encompass.

On receipt of any information, the Welfare Lead, Rebecca Malli or Designated Safeguarding lead will decide on the appropriate support the child requires.  All information sharing and resulting actions will be undertaken in accordance with ‘Operation Encompass Joint Agency Protocol for Domestic abuse’. We will record this information and store this information in accordance with record keeping procedures around Safeguarding the wellbeing of children and young people.
