The school works closely with Cheshire Police to identify signs of radicalisation and extremism and refers to Prevent. (Prevent Policy)


What is Prevent?

The Government has a strategy called PREVENT which aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

  • Main focus to prevent repeats of terrorist acts.
  • Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it.
  • Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support.
  • Work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation which we need to address.
