Ivybridge Community College, in partnership with Devon and Cornwall Police, are part of Operation Encompass, an early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Abuse.
Operation Encompass means that the police will share information about Domestic Abuse incidents with our College, prior to the start of the next school day, when they have been called to a domestic incident.
Key adults at the College have completed Operation Encompass training to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, to ensure that the College is able to make provision to support the young person, or their families, who have been exposed to a domestic abuse incident. This includes not doing anything that would put the young person and their family at risk.
The College is committed to offering the best support possible to all of our students and their families and believe the Operation Encompass partnership is beneficial for all involved.
The key adults at the College are
- Nina Kyprianidis Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)
- Sharon Hughes (DDSL)
- Matt Anniss (DDSL)
- Claire Warne (DDSL)
