The ‘Prevent’ Strategy

Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism.

You may have heard about the Government’s ‘Prevent’ strategy which covers all types of terrorism and extremism, including the extreme right wing, violent Islamist groups and other causes.

From July 2015 all schools (as well as other organisations) have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism. This page is designed to provide parents with information about the strategy and what we are doing as a school to respond to this strategy.
