Operation Encompass 

In conjunction with Lancashire Police, Carr Hill High School is involved in a national initiative called 'Operation Encompass'.  The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.

Following an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared.  Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate school staff are made aware early enough to help and support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.

This is a valuable initiative that means we can help and support students and their families within our school when they need us most.

You can find out more information by visiting the Operation Encompass website here or by contacting Mr D Morton at school (Key Adult at Carr Hill High School).

Prevent Extremism 

At Carr Hill High School we are committed to preventing extremism and radicalisation to keep our pupils safe. Over the last few years, global events have led to a growth of extremist viewpoints, including advocacy of violent extremism. Schools have an important part to play in both educating children and young people about extremism and recognising when pupils start to become radicalised. Recently the Government launched an ‘Educate Against Hate’ website designed to provide practical advice for schools, parents and students about tackling extremism and radicalisation. More information can be found here.
