Prevent

The Prevent Agenda
Game

From 1 July 2015 we are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism". Protecting children from the risk of radicalisation and extremism is part of all staff's wider safeguarding duties.

Radicalisation refers to the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and forms of extremism. Extremism is vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs and includes calling for the death of members of our armed forces, whether in this country or overseas. During the process of radicalisation it is possible to intervene to prevent vulnerable people being radicalised.

At Petersfield we have a policy and a risk assessment and action plan to meet our statutory obligations to work to prevent people being drawn into radicalisation and extremism. All staff are being trained in the necessary skills to identify people at risk, follow the policies and procedures of the Local Safeguarding Children's board and teach pupils about safety including online safety.

At Petersfield we focus on addressing safeguarding with pupils through personal, social health and economic and citizenship education (PSHCE) lessons. However, we ensure that educating our pupils about safeguarding, including online, is done through teaching and learning opportunities, as part of providing a broad and balanced curriculum.
