Prevent Statement

Prevent at Thringstone Primary School

As part of our School’s ongoing Safeguarding and Child Protection duty of care for pupils and staff, we are fully behind the Government’s Prevent Strategy to safeguard pupils and staff from the risk of being drawn into terrorism.

From 1 July 2015, all schools have been subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools.

At Thringstone, our Prevent statement makes our commitment to this duty clear.

Provision - pupils enjoy a creative curriculum which includes a global and anti-racist approach to each topic enhanced by social, moral, spiritual and cultural opportunities and the promotion of fundamental British Values.
Respect - is a key element of our school community ensuring that children and adults feel safe and confident to make choices with an understanding of the consequences of their actions on others.
E-Safety - is central to our learning in a 21st century classroom and pupils are kept safe through filtering but are also taught how to keep themselves safe when using the internet.
Values – Our British Values underpin all we do at Thringstone Primary School and support our active promotion of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.
Elected school council members ensure that pupils have an active voice in school and help to shape the future of policy and practice through discussion, debate and a fair democratic process.
No - We say no to any form of hate incident. We believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society; everyone should be treated with respect whatever their race, gender, sexuality, religious belief, special need, or disability. Our pastoral care ensures swift action and targeted support for all members of our school.
Training – Staff are trained to identify risks and the processes involved in radicalisation. They are aware of the importance of early intervention and are committed to challenge any form of extremist behaviour. They know the routes for referral and key staff have completed the HM Government e-learning training on Prevent.

The PREVENT lead at Thringstone Primary School is Mr David Chapple, Headteacher.
