  • Operation Encompass

Our Academy is taking part in a new operation that will run jointly with Sussex Police called Operation Encompass.

Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting to schools and colleges of any domestic abuse incidents that occur in which a child was present, ordinarily resides at the incident location or with an involved party. We know that children can be significantly affected through witnessing or being exposed to domestic abuse and this operation will allow us to better support our pupils and their families.

A nominated member of staff, known as a Key Adult, has been trained to liaise with the police. At Robsack Wood Primary Academy our Key Adult is Mrs Savage. She will be able to use information that has been shared with her, in confidence, to ensure that the right support is available should it be required by a child and / or their family.

We are keen to offer the best support available to our pupils and we believe this is going to be extremely beneficial for all those involved.

If you have any concerns or questions then please contact Mrs Savage or Ms Pascoe-Hale and we will be happy to discuss this further.
