What you need to know about GSCP Safeguarding Children Training Courses


Operation Encompass for Schools and Nurseries

Operation Encompass is a national operation that directly connects the Police with schools and early years settings to secure better outcomes for children who are subject or witness to police-attended incidents of domestic abuse. Provision of support within the school/early years environment means children are better safeguarded against the
short-, medium- and long-term effects of domestic abuse.

The GSCP ran virtual training sessions as the end of last year to ensure the effectiveness of this scheme and to enable settings to be equipped with documentation to support the scheme. To access the recording of this session, the slides and other useful documentation, please click the link below:
