Gloucestershire Encompass


As part of ongoing collaborative working between Gloucestershire Constabulary and Gloucestershire County Council to further safeguard the children of Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board (GSCB) is pleased to announce the launch of Gloucestershire Encompass. This is based upon the successful model of sharing information between police and schools where there has been a reported incident of Domestic Abuse.




To ensure the effectiveness of this scheme and to enable you to be equipped with documentation to support Gloucestershire Encompass, the GSCB would like to offer every school to attend one of the training sessions.

To enable you to be as prepared as possible for this launch, we would welcome one of your Designated Safeguarding Lead team members (at SLT level) to attend one of the following training sessions, with a view to them becoming the Encompass lead within your setting:-


Monday 11th February 2019 – 4.30pm to 6pm at The Dean Academy, Lydney, GL15 5DZ

Tuesday 12th February 2019 – 4.30pm to 6pm at Sir Thomas Rich’s School, Longlevens, GL2 0LF

Wednesday 13th February 2019 – 4.30pm to 6pm at Stow on the Wold Primary School, St. Edward’s Drive, Stow, GL54 1AW


To book your place, please contact mail@gscb.org.uk and entitle your email Gloucestershire Encompass.


In preparation for this launch you are required to set up a dedicated email address at the school that can be accessed by the DSL team to receive Encompass notifications, this should be encompass@...................

Please bring this information along with the name of the Encompass lead within your setting to the training session.  We aim to set up a directory of your information to ensure the effectiveness of this scheme.  Therefore your co-operation is vital to the success of Gloucestershire Encompass.
