THE PREVENT AGENDA AT

ST ALBAN’S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL

 The Government’s PREVENT agenda encompasses all strategies used to combat extremism and radicalisation.

 

 

As a school, our role within the PREVENT agenda is to give children the knowledge and skills to enable them:

  • To think for themselves
  • To challenge and to debate
  • To learn about different cultures and faiths and, to gain an understanding of the values we share.
  • To explore ideas, developing a sense of identity and forming views as a normal part of growing up.

 

We do this through:

  • Our school values, driven by our Mission Statement, aims and objectives
  • Teaching children to live by our school (Christian) values which are inclusive and promote equality and diversity
  • Safeguarding procedures to identify those children who are vulnerable or at risk
  • Promoting confidence, independence and resilience in their learning and thinking
  • Religious Education, collective worship and PSHE
  • Providing a safe environment for discussion and debate, including controversial issues
  • Teaching children about the value of living in a democratic society
  • Helping children understand how they can influence and participate in decision-making. We need to encourage young people to express their views but also to appreciate the impact their views can have on others
  • Teaching children to take responsibility for their actions and to understand that the use of violence is criminal
  • Enabling children to make a positive contribution through fundraising to support those in need locally, nationally and globally
  • Enabling children to make a positive contribution within our school through fundraising, school council and pupil voice
  • Teaching children about e-safety
  • Providing opportunities for children to learn about other faiths and cultures, particularly the things we have in common
  • Adopting a “no blame” approach to bullying, which focuses on addressing underlying perceptions and emotions associated to a situation and restoring relationships rather than attributing blame
  • Tackling any instances of prejudice-based behaviours
