The Prevent Duty
Throughout Primary Education, we believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore the issues of diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society. As part of our Curriculum we provide a safe learning environment in which children can raise controversial questions and concerns and explore boundaries of what is acceptable regarding their attitude to multi cultural and race issues.
PREVENT forms part of the Goverments counter terrorism strategy and aims to prevent children and young people from getting drawn into terrorism.
There’s a chance that your child may meet people online or visit websites that could lead them to adopting what we consider to be extreme views, and becoming radicalised.
