Prevent is about safeguarding individuals from being drawn into terrorism, ensuring those vulnerable to extremist and terrorist ideas are given appropriate advice and support at an early stage. Prevent is no different to any other form of safeguarding from harm.
Every member of staff, employed by the trust and Mead Vale, undergoes Prevent training as part of their induction process following a job appointment. Members of the safeguarding team all attend advanced Prevent (WRAP) training.
Children in school are taught about Prevent through the promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and discussions in the PHSE curriculum of fundamental British values.
We challenge our children to look at how they can be inclusive in their actions and discussions. We hold regular assemblies and circle times in class to talk about how there are diverse national, regional, religious and ethnic identities in the United Kingdom we promote the need for mutual respect and understanding.
