We are an Operation Encompass School

The Operation Encompass partnership scheme is between local schools, academies, colleges, community health organisatin sand Lancashire police. 

There are currently no procedures for reporting Domestic Abuse incidents to schools which means that our children are left without the support and nurture that they need when they need it most. Operation Encompass has been created to address this so that by 9.00am on the next school day the school’s Key Adult will be informed that the child or young person has been involved, heard or witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.

Information will only be shared with the school by the police where it is identifed that a young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic  abuse incident. ​

Mrs Geldard Head Teacher is the key adult within Lancaster Lane School.
