Preventing Extremism

In 2011 the Government put into place something called the ‘Prevent’ strategy. Schools, including primary schools, are required to include this as part of their safeguarding procedures. In practice, for us, this means challenging prejudice and racist comments, promoting British values and exploring other cultures and religions to promote diversity.
