All Leicestershire Schools are now part of a safeguarding initiative, which aims to improve outcomes
for children and families affected by domestic violence and abuse.
This scheme has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse
incidents that might have an impact on a child that attends their school. The approach, known as
Operation Encompass is being rolled out across the UK. In Leicestershire the scheme is run in
partnership between Leicestershire County Council and Leicestershire Police.
