Operation Endeavour

27th January 2020

Operation Endeavour is a safeguarding arrangement between Newcastle Children’s Social Care Service, Northumbria Police and schools and colleges in Newcastle to safeguard children and young people at risk of harm from going missing.

Following any report of a child going missing to the Police, the Police will contact Children’s Social Care who will then communicate relevant and necessary information to the child’s school. 

The process is similar to that of Operation Encompass, which notifies schools when children have been exposed to Domestic Violence.
