At Tennyson Road Primary School, we are working in partnership with Luton Council and Bedfordshire Police to identify and provide appropriate support to pupils who have experienced domestic abuse in their household; nationally this scheme is called Operation Encompass and known locally as Relay. In order to achieve this, Luton Council will share police information with the Nominated Relay SPOC of all domestic incidents where one of the pupils in the school has been affected. On receipt of any information, the Nominated Relay SPOC will decide on the appropriate support the child requires.
All information sharing and resulting actions will be undertaken in accordance with the ‘LBC Protocol for Domestic Abuse – Notifications to Schools’. The information will be recorded and stored it in accordance with the record keeping procedures outlined in this policy.
