As of July 2015, under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, it became the duty of all schools (and other organisations) to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism. All schools have a responsibility to protect pupils from extremist and violent views, and also to teach and promote values such as mutual respect and tolerance.

Within our school we work hard to enable our pupils to become positive, confident and respectful members of society and as such  are safeguarded from radicalisation and extremism.


We do this by: -


  • Having a school mission statement with clear aims and visions
  • Providing a safe, secure environment for pupils to learn in
  • Exploring different religions and cultures as part of our curriculum and within religious education lessons
  • Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils by providing a Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship programme
  • Promoting safe use of the internet and providing safe, secure internet access within school
  • Promoting community cohesion by establishing and maintaining contact with local community groups, other local schools and schools in contrasting localities
  • Having a school council and ensuring that all pupils are valued and listened to.
  • Sharing information to support and develop self assertiveness, and an awareness of when to use these skills
  • Having an awareness of radicalisation on extremism
