Operation SCEPTRE – Help Us to Stop Knife Crime and Keep Young People Safe
Bury’s Community Safety Partnership is working with partners across the borough as part of a national campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of carrying knives.
As part of Operation SCEPTRE we are writing to all parents, guardians and carers to ask for your help in keeping our young people safe.
We know that some young people are carrying knives in order to protect themselves, however the reality is that carrying a knife actually increases the chance that you will be seriously injured or killed. It is most often the case that the knife being carried for protection ends up being used against the person carrying it.
We are aware that young people are not necessarily carrying specialist knives, but rather knives which are easily accessible within the kitchen at home.
It is important to understand that even when a person carries a knife for protection, simply having the knife in their possession is a criminal offence, and that on conviction, the offence carries a sentence of up to four years.
We know that most young people do not carry knives and would never consider doing so, however we would ask all parents to talk to their children about the dangers of carrying knives and to be vigilant of knives disappearing from within the home environment.
If you or your child has any information about knife crime, this can be reported to Greater Manchester Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Young people can also report information anonymously and find information, help, advice or support at Fearless.org
Help us to reduce knife crime and to keep our young people safe.

All our teachers have been provided with a new Green Point Stamper which they will be using to stamp your work in class as well as your homework.
During a recent Student Voice activity, some children told us that sometimes it wasn’t clear to them which teachers had given them a green point, and some didn’t know what their green point was for. So to improve the way we communicate our awarding of green points for good classwork, good homework, contribution in lessons and good citizenship in school, FROTHS bought the green stampers which we had specially made for our school.
The green stampers will be used to indicate on your work when a green point has been awarded to you. That way you will know when it was given , who it was given by, and what it was given for.
FROTHS (Friends of Tottington High School) are a team of parents, teachers and governors who work hard all year round raising funds for school which is spent on things which directly improve the lives of our students in school. To find out more about FROTHS, and how to become a member of the team, please visit our FROTHS page by clicking or tapping here.
Recycle for Greater Manchester encourage and support the people of Greater Manchester to recycle right and think about what we throw away.
They work with local councils in Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford to improve the quality and quantity of recycling collected and processed.
We buy and throw away things every day. What we do with what we throw away makes a difference. Whether it’s a tram ticket, a shop receipt or a drinks can. By putting the right stuff in the right bin, we are all playing a big part in making sure what can be recycled, is recycled.
