Preventing Extremism & Radicalisation
Schools and childcare providers can also build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling them to challenge extremist views. It is important to emphasise that the Prevent Duty is not intended to stop pupils debating controversial issues. On the contrary, schools should provide a safe space in which children, young people and staff can understand the risks associated with terrorism and develop the knowledge and skills to be able to challenge extremist arguments.
What does this mean for us?
- SLT and school staff have undergone Prevent Training.
- Briefing sessions have been held/emailed to all members of staff and the governors.
- Prevent advice is now part of our induction process.
- British Values are promoted around the school and also form an integral part of our school ethos.
