Prevent/Terrorism

Schools are often seen as a first line of defence to help prevent extremism by spotting warning signs; they are also well placed to help children understand the multi-cultural society within which we live and to promote British values through their learning. The recommended websites in this document have been taken from the Government’s site - Educate Against Hate (opens new window), other material can also be located through this link.

Protecting children from the risk of radicalisation should be seen as part of schools’ and colleges’ wider safeguarding duties, and is similar in nature to protecting children from other forms of harm and abuse. During the process of radicalisation it is possible to intervene to prevent vulnerable people being radicalised.

The Government has launched educate against hate, a website designed to equip school and college leaders, teachers and parents with the information, tools and resources they need to recognise and address extremism and radicalisation in young people. The website provides information on training resources for teachers, staff and school and college leaders, such as Prevent e-learning, via the Prevent Training catalogue.

If anyone does have concerns about someone at risk of radicalisation and extremism please email – preventreferrals@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk
