Prevent Duty

As of July 2015, under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, it became the duty of all schools (and other organisations) to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism. All schools have a responsibility to protect pupils from extremist and violent views, and also to teach and promote values such as mutual respect and tolerance.

British Values include: -

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty and mutual respect
  • Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs


Within our school we work hard to enable our pupils to become positive, confident and respectful members of society.

This is supported by: -

  • Having a school mission statement with clear aims and visions
  • Providing a safe, secure environment for pupils to learn in
  • Exploring different religions and cultures as part of our curriculum and within religious education lessons
  • Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils by providing a Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship programme
  • Promoting safe use of the internet and providing safe, secure access to the internet within school
  • Promoting community cohesion by establishing and maintaining contact with local community groups, other local schools and schools in contrasting localities
  • Having a school council and ensuring that all pupils are valued and listened to.
