Wroot Travis Charity School Prevent Strategy

As part of our commitment to safeguarding and child protection we support the government’s Prevent Strategy, and take guidance from Teaching Appoaches to help to build resilience to extremism. More information is available here: http://www.ltai.info/what-is-prevent/

What is the Prevent Strategy?

The Prevent strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes. 

Many of the things we already do in school to help children become positive, happy members of society also contribute to the Prevent strategy.

These include:

  • Exploring other cultures and religions and promoting diversity
  • Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, as well as British values such as democracy
  • Developing critical thinking skills and a strong, positive self-identity
  • Challenging prejudices and racist comments
  • We will also protect children from the risk of radicalisation, for example by using filters on the Internet to make sure they can’t access extremist and terrorist material, or by vetting visitors who come into school to work with pupils.

At our school, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values.

The statutory guidance refers to the importance of Prevent awareness training to equip staff to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and to challenge extremist ideas. At our school all teaching and support staff have completed training.
