As of 27th November 2017, Newtown Primary School has been involved in Operation Encompass, a project that runs jointly between schools and Devon and Cornwall Police
Operation Encompass enables reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.
Operation Encompass ensures that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.
We are dedicated to ensuring the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
