As part of South Failsworth's Primary School’s commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government’s Prevent Strategy, and take guidance from Teaching Approaches to help build resilience to extremism.
What is the Prevent Strategy?
The Prevent Strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It:
- responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of terrorism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views.
- provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support.
- works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health).
At South Failsworth Primary School we ensure that we teach the children about the Prevent Aims. This is done through quality circle time and PSHE activities. In each year group we teach our children to be safe and recognise the possible dangers they may face. Teachers make sure that this is done in a sensitive and age appropriate way.
We also protect children from the risk of radicalisation, for example by using filters on the internet to make sure they can’t access unsuitable material, and by vetting visitors who come into school to work with pupils.
