Preventing Extremism and Radicalisation
Schools have a vital role to play in protecting pupils from the risks of extremism and radicalisation. Keeping children safe from these risks is a safeguarding matter and should be approached in the same way as safeguarding children from other risks.
Parents may also have concerns about their children and may look to schools as a trusted source of advice on how to keep their children safe from these risks. You can find materials produced by the police – such as the new "Prevent Tragedies" online campaign.
There are online resources produced by 'Families Against Stress & Trauma' which provide valuable advice.
Our staff are aware of that DfE Due Diligence and Counter Extremism have recently launched a dedicated confidential telephone helpline to enable school staff and governors to raise concerns relating to extremism directly and in confidence.
If you have any concerns regarding radicalisation or need any advice at all please do not hesitate to ask at the school office.
