Local protocol update


The Leeds Joint Agency Protocol for Domestic Violence and Abuse: School and Higher Education Notifications sets out a joint-agency approach to provide, by early intervention, appropriate support for children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse in their household. It draws on the principles of Operation Encompass which is established in a number of areas nationally. The protocol identifies how information shared by Police in relation to Domestic Violence incidents where a child is present in the last 24 hours, is shared with a safeguarding lead in the school or educational setting. This sharing of information (by means of a telephone call) allows schools and educational settings to take appropriate steps to support their pupil during what could be an emotionally difficult day.
