Our College has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Colleges, Barnsley Metropolitan District Council and South Yorkshire Police. This project is known as Operation Encompass.
Operation Encompass is the notification to the College that a child (under 18) may have been affected by a domestic incident. This will be done by the start of the next College day.
Operation Encompass ensures that a specifically trained member of College staff, known as a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), is informed. The DSL can then use the information, in confidence, to ensure the wellbeing of the student. The College will look to make provisions or adjustments to assist the young person.
Our College is keen to offer the best support possible to all of our young people and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
