PREVENT

 

 Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or  supporting terrorist  or extremist causes. 

 The Prevent Strategy covers all types of terrorism and extremism, including  political and religious  extremism.  

 From July 2015, all schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation  and extremism.

 This means we have a responsibility to protect children from extremist and  violent views, in the  same way we protect them from drugs or gang violence.  

 Importantly, we can provide a safe place for pupils to discuss these issues so  that they better understand how to protect themselves.

 The Prevent Strategy is not just about discussing extremism itself, but is also  about teaching children values such as tolerance and mutual respect.

 

 Staff training has taken place and has been cascaded through the curriculum:

 March 2016

 November 2016

 All staff and stakeholders are aware of the signs and risks involved and the processes that  should be followed should any incident arise.
