What is the Prevent Strategy and how does it apply to schools?
From July 2015 all schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and
extremism. Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people supporting any
extreme cause, becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist causes. We have a responsibility
to protect children from extremism and violent views, the same way as we protect them
through our behaviour policy and online safety. At All Saints we provide a safe place to
discuss these issues with children, so they learn how to protect themselves.
Extremism – vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values such as democracy, the rule of law and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.
Terrorism – a violent action against people or property, designed to create fear and advance a political, religious or ideological cause.
Radicalisation – the process by which a person comes to support extremism and terrorism.
Ideology – a set of beliefs.
At All Saints we enable our children to become possitive members of society by:
Safeguarding children through the 'Protective Behaviours' and
'Taking Care Project'and ICT, Online Safety lessons.
Learning about a range of religions through RE lessons.
Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils.
Promoting British Values throughout the curriculum
Challenging prejudices and racial comments by providing a safe place to discuss these issues.
Developing pupil's self esteem through regular PSHE lessons.
