Safeguarding Children in Modern Britain
The expression of extremist views by anyone in school will not be tolerated. Therefore we will take swift and decisive action where issues of this nature are brought to our attention. Namely, that we expect allstaff to encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Staff will ensure that partisan political views are not promoted in the teaching of any subject in the school and where political issues are brought to the attention of pupils, reasonably practicable steps will be taken to offer a balanced presentation of opposing views.
As a school if we believe that a child is being abused through extremism we will consult in the normal way with Family Connect and seek advice as to whether to initiate a referral to the ‘Prevent’ team. As with all referrals this will be dealt with by the appropriate professionals. Our policy also recognises that the local police can be contacted in imminent circumstances and at firstname.lastname@example.org
