Working positively to protect young people from radicalisation.
You may have heard about the Prevent Duty, which aims to prevent young people from being radicalised by, for example, far right extremists or religious extremists.
In school we have a duty to care for the children and take note of any child who is at risk of radicalisation, regardless of their background. We also have to take steps to help prevent children being exposed to extremist ideas. Our overriding concern is that children feel safe and also express tolerance towards all cultures and religions, even when personal views may be different. Please read the booklet below for more information.
Ash Croft Primary Academy works closely with the Prevent Education Officer, Sally Siner, who supports us with up to date local information and ways to keep our children well educated and safe. Here is a video to explain how this work is completed with our pupils and the content of our lessons.
