    • ICT - Internet safety and online propaganda

    • English and Media - the use of propaganda

    • Tutor-based activities such as the study of news items

  • Socially empowering and politically engaging students

  • Building students' empathy and tolerance of different perspectives in order to strengthen their resilience to the pull of extreme ideologies

  • Protecting children from the risk of radicalisation


The Prevent Duty

Paragraph 64 'Schools should be safe spaces in which children and young people can understand and discuss sensitive topics, including terrorism and the extremist ideas that are part of terrorist ideology, and learn how to challenge these ideas. The Prevent duty is not intended to limit discussion of these issues. Schools should, however, be mindful of their existing duties to forbid political indoctrination and secure a balanced presentation of political issues.'
