Safeguarding and Prevent

The Prevent Duty

Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a duty on schools prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

This is known as the Prevent strategy, which aims to reduce the threat to the UK from terrorism by stopping people from becoming radicalised, supporting terrorism, or becoming terrorists.

As a school therefore, we have to ensure we understand any risks of radicalisation and take steps to minimise any such risks.

We have a wide range of policies relating to keeping children safe and promoting their welfare. In addition, we teach a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. This includes promoting community cohesion and British values. Our curriculum ensures children learn right from wrong, mix and share with other children and value other’s views, know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and challenge negative attitudes and stereotypes.

For further details about how we are fulfilling our duties under the Prevent strategy, please see our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy below which includes Prevent.

Our Prevent Lead is Mrs Gemma Edwards, Acting Deputy Headteacher
