Prevent

As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability. All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faith and beliefs.

Effective communication between teachers and parents will ensure that all matters are dealt with as soon as possible.
