We are an Operation Encompass School

What does this mean?


Fullbrook Nursery School is part of a jointly run operation between Walsall Council, West Midlands Police called Operation Encompass. This has been set-up to help schools to provide support to children who have been present at incidents of domestic abuse. We know that children can be traumatised when they are involved in, present or witness to domestic abuse and may be in need of emotional and practical support.


Our School will receive a confidential communication from the Police Operation Encompass on the morning after any police notification or attended domestic abuse incident.


Andrina Flinders, the school’s Headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead has received training to allow her to use the information that has been shared in confidence to make sure that the right support is offered at the right time, for our school children, young people and families. All information sharing and resulting actions will be undertaken in accordance with the Operation Encompass Joint Agency Protocol for Domestic Abuse’. We will record this information and store this information in accordance with the record keeping procedures around Safeguarding the wellbeing of children and young people.


We are keen to offer the best support possible to our pupils and we have adopted Operation Encompass as we believe this is extremely beneficial to meeting the needs of our pupils.


If you have any concerns or questions, then please contact Andrina and she will be happy to discuss this further. Further information about the project is available at:
