The Department for Education’s (DfE's) ‘Prevent’ duty states that we must:
“safeguard children and young people in England from extremists and extremist views in school and in out of school hours learning, and stop young people from becoming radicalised or acting on extreme views."
In line with the Department for Education Prevent Duty guidance published in July 2015, Belmont Park School is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all of students and aim to deliver lessons based on the following themes:
- Internet and Digital Awareness
- Stereotyping and the Media
- Persuasion and Influence
- Conspiracy Theories
with the aim of enabling our to pupils build a resistance to extremist messages and to challenge a number of harmful and divisive narratives.
The leaflet attached is aimed at empowering parents/carers to understand the Prevent Strategy and where to go for it they need further help.
