As part of Isle of Ely’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.
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 extremism, 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 Isle of Ely 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 to recognise the possible dangers they may face. Teachers make sure that this is done in a sensitive and age appropriate way.
All staff have been trained to recognise signs of extremism.
Here is a useful website for you to look at to guide your understanding and learning of the systems we use to protect children against radicalisation and extremism.
