Operation Encompass: Sithney School works in partnership with Devon and Cornwall Police to ensure that a member of school staff is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence. This will enable the school to provide appropriate support for the children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.
