Keeping Your Child Safe

The Child Protection policy and other associated policies can be found on the Academy’s website. These include the Preventing Radicalisation policy, relating to the Prevent duty. The Prevent duty identifies statutory duties placed on schools by the Counter Terrorism and Security Act (2015) which means they must work to prevent children being drawn into extremism. This is a duty on all schools and registered early years providers to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism; this is part of our commitment to keeping children safe. Over the last few years, global events have led to a growth of extremist viewpoints, including advocacy of violent extremism. Schools have an important part to play in both educating children and young people about extremism and recognising when pupils start to become radicalised. Safeguarding children from all risks of harm is an important part of a school’s work and protecting them from extremism is one aspect of that.

Further information about safeguarding your children can be found on the website, including information for parents below relating to internet safety and the ChildLine and NSPCC PANTS campaign.
