Berry Hill Primary School is committed to safeguarding, and promoting the welfare of all of our children and families. We recognise that in an ever changing and fast moving world, it is essential that we promote children's well-being, confidence and resilience, and that we provide them with up to date and age-appropriate information and signpost them to places where they can find support, where necessary.
We see protecting our children from the risk of radicalisation as part of our wider safeguarding duties, and that it is similar in nature to protecting students from other harms (e.g. drugs, gangs, cyber-bullying, neglect, and sexual exploitation), whether these come from within their family or are the product of outside influences. We acknowledge the PREVENT Duty and we have due regard to the need to prevent children and their families from being drawn into any illegal activity, including terrorism. This includes right wing extremism.
At Berry Hill Primary School, all staff are expected to uphold the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. These values are promoted through our values and ethos, the curriculum, citizenship, assembly themes and PHSE work.
All staff have undertaken the Prevent Duty accredited training. 'CHANNEL' is a key process within the Prevent strategy for assessing individuals’ vulnerability to being drawn into terrorism. It focuses on early intervention and diverting people away from risk.
We have robust procedures in place to protect our children from radicalisation and extremism. These are reviewed and evaluated regularly to ensure they are effective.
